Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 19 December 2080 at 11:23.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1851" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2080 after 4 days on 26 December 2080 at 17:03.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1001 of Meeus index or 1954 from Brown series.
Length of current 1001 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 1002 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠119.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠151.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
6 days after point of apogee on 16 December 2080 at 08:18 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 December 2080 at 06:47 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 387 307 km (240 661 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 629 km (224 084 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 19 December 2080 at 12:25 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 January 2081 at 06:33 in ♍ Virgo.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 12 December 2080 at 02:19 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.401°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.412° in the next northern standstill on 26 December 2080 at 07:29 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 26 December 2080 at 17:03 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
