Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1808" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2084 after 11 days on 22 March 2084 at 06:48.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1041 of Meeus index or 1994 from Brown series.
Length of current 1041 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 48 minutes. It is 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 1042 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠58.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠92.7°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 2 March 2084 at 16:27 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 March 2084 at 19:06 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 396 485 km (246 364 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 243 km (251 185 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 3 March 2084 at 06:34 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 March 2084 at 04:22 in ♋ Cancer.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 29 February 2084 at 15:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.203°. Next 3 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 11 days on 22 March 2084 at 06:48 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
