Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 28 October 2080 at 16:13.
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 about ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1925" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2080 after 26 days on 27 November 2080 at 05:14.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
9 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 November 2080 at 09:49 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 372 344 km (231 364 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 160 km (230 007 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 26 October 2080 at 03:27 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 November 2080 at 04:19 in ♎ Libra.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 18 October 2080 at 10:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.649°. Next day 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 11 days on 11 November 2080 at 15:37 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
