Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 2 June 2080 at 13:45.
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 is passing first ∠0° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2080 after 25 days on 2 July 2080 at 04:09.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 994 of Meeus index or 1947 from Brown series.
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°).
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.
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 is at apogee at 12:37. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 21 May 2080 at 17:58 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 18 June 2080 at 21:12 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 405 518 km (251 977 mi) away from Earth. It is 110 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 191 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
8 days after descending node on 28 May 2080 at 17:05 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 June 2080 at 05:55 in ♈ Aries.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 4 June 2080 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.386°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.379° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 June 2080 at 01:30 in ♋ Cancer.
In 11 days on 17 June 2080 at 18:40 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
