Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 21 February 2084 at 16:36.
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 ∠10° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1891" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2084 after 26 days on 22 March 2084 at 06:48.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
8 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 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 March 2084 at 16:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 379 021 km (235 513 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 159 km (228 763 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 18 February 2084 at 23:12 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 March 2084 at 06:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 15 February 2084 at 18:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.289°. Next 5 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 11 days on 6 March 2084 at 17:04 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
