Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 13 February 2084 at 13:28.
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 ∠18° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2084 after 6 days on 21 February 2084 at 16:36.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1040 of Meeus index or 1993 from Brown series.
Length of current 1040 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 11 minutes. It is 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 1041 length.
Length of current synodic month is 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠33.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠58.7°. 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 apogee on this date at 22:33, this is 11 days after last perigee on 4 February 2084 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 2 March 2084 at 16:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 404 864 km (251 571 mi) away from Earth. It is 544 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 845 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after its ascending node on 4 February 2084 at 23:18 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 February 2084 at 23:12 in ♋ Cancer.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 18:41 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠26.289°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-26.203° in its southern standstill point on 29 February 2084 at 15:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 21 February 2084 at 16:36 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
