Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 30 January 2084 at 12:42.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2084 after 17 days on 21 February 2084 at 16:36.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1039 of Meeus index or 1992 from Brown series.
Length of current 1039 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 36 minutes. It is 35 minutes shorter than next lunation 1040 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠15°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠33.6°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 03:46, this is 15 days after last apogee on 19 January 2084 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 15 February 2084 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 362 658 km (225 345 mi) away from Earth. It is 150 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 7 698 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 23:18 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 18 February 2084 at 23:12 in ♋ Cancer.
At 23:18 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
2 days after previous South standstill on 2 February 2084 at 09:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.324°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.289° in the next northern standstill on 15 February 2084 at 18:41 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 6 February 2084 at 04:53 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
