Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 26 December 2080 at 17:03.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1962"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1951".

Cold Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2081 after 24 days on 25 January 2081 at 04:01.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 1001 / 1954

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1001 of Meeus index or 1954 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.74 days

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.

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠119.5°

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°).

Moon after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 28 December 2080 at 06:47 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 January 2081 at 23:29 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 309 km

Moon is 365 309 km (226 992 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 193 km (252 397 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 January 2081 at 06:33 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 26 December 2080 at 07:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.412°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.426° in the next southern standstill on 8 January 2081 at 08:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 10 January 2081 at 01:02 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
