Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1951".

Synodic month length 29.81 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 24 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2080. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 6 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 23 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠174.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠174.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠199.5°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 19:49. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 23 December 2079 at 21:45 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 19 January 2080 at 22:45 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 356 505 km

This perigee Moon is 356 505 km (221 522 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2080. It is 6 003 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 80 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 31 December 2079 at 23:44 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 January 2080 at 09:00 in ♎ Libra.

Moon at northern standstill

At 04:42 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.224°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2080. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.251° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 19 January 2080 at 15:20.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
