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 is passing about ∠25° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2080 after 3 days on 28 October 2080 at 16:13.
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.
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 999 of Meeus index or 1952 from Brown series.
Length of current 999 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 53 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 1000 length.
Length of current synodic month is 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠51.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠82.5°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 21 October 2080 at 15:25 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 November 2080 at 09:49 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 398 909 km (247 871 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 160 km (230 007 mi).
13 days after its descending node on 11 October 2080 at 21:44 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 October 2080 at 03:27 in ♈ Aries.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 18 October 2080 at 10:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.649°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.580° in the next northern standstill on 1 November 2080 at 15:18 in ♊ Gemini.
After 3 days on 28 October 2080 at 16:13 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
