Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 26 May 2080 at 02:03.

Moonrise and moonset

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 in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1876"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1876" and ∠1893".

Strawberry Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2080 after 4 days on 2 June 2080 at 13:45.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 994 / 1947

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 994 of Meeus index or 1947 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.32 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 4 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠323.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠323.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠341.5°.

Moon after perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 21 May 2080 at 17:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 June 2080 at 12:37 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 382 059 km

The Moon is 382 059 km (237 400 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 518 km (251 977 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 28 May 2080 at 17:05 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 June 2080 at 05:55 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 21 May 2080 at 16:35 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.443°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.386° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 June 2080 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 2 June 2080 at 13:45 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
