Synodic month length 29.28 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2080. It is 12 minutes shorter 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 6 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠341.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠341.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠357°.

Moon before apogee

11 days after point of apogee on 3 July 2080 at 22:07 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 July 2080 at 05:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 365 535 km

The Moon is 365 535 km (227 133 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 232 km (221 974 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after ascending node on 9 July 2080 at 07:56 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 21 July 2080 at 20:09 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon at northern standstill

At 11:18 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.422°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.461° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 28 July 2080 at 13:41.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 17 July 2080 at 01:21 in ♋ Cancer 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.
