Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 28 February 2084 at 21:04.
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 ∠17° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2084 after 19 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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 perigee on this date at 16:27, this is 15 days after last apogee on 15 February 2084 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 14 March 2084 at 19:06 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 368 159 km (228 763 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 651 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 197 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 March 2084 at 06:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 29 February 2084 at 15:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.203°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.104° in the next northern standstill on 14 March 2084 at 02:47 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 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.
