Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days 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 ∠23° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2084 after 3 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 12 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 15 February 2084 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 March 2084 at 16:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 402 983 km (250 402 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 159 km (228 763 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 23:12 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 3 March 2084 at 06:34 in ♑ Capricorn.

2 days after previous North standstill on 15 February 2084 at 18:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.289°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.203° in the next southern standstill on 29 February 2084 at 15:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 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.
