Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 27 November 2080 at 05:14.
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 ∠24° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1934" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2080 after 28 days on 26 December 2080 at 17:03.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
9 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 November 2080 at 07:40 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 370 545 km (230 246 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 156 km (227 519 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 22 November 2080 at 09:33 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 December 2080 at 06:12 in ♎ Libra.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 22:14 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.451°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.401° in its southern standstill point on 12 December 2080 at 02:19 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 days on 11 December 2080 at 07:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
