First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 51% and growing larger. The 7 days young Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 14 March 2084 at 10:06 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2084 after 7 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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 19:06, this is 12 days after last perigee on 2 March 2084 at 16:27 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 27 March 2084 at 14:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 404 243 km (251 185 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 165 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 466 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 March 2084 at 04:22 in ♋ Cancer.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 02:47 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠26.104°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-25.978° in its southern standstill point on 27 March 2084 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 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.
