Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 19 November 2080 at 14:20.
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 first ∠3° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1803" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2080 after 4 days on 27 November 2080 at 05:14.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1000 of Meeus index or 1953 from Brown series.
Length of current 1000 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 33 minutes. It is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 1001 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠82.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠119.5°. 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 18 November 2080 at 12:07 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 November 2080 at 07:40 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 397 577 km (247 043 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 156 km (227 519 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 09:33 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 5 December 2080 at 06:12 in ♎ Libra.
At 09:33 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
7 days after previous South standstill on 14 November 2080 at 19:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.509°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.451° in the next northern standstill on 28 November 2080 at 22:14 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 27 November 2080 at 05:14 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
