Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 22 March 2084 at 06:48.
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 ∠16° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2084 after 24 days on 20 April 2084 at 17:52.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 perigee on this date at 14:45, this is 12 days after last apogee on 14 March 2084 at 19:06 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 11 April 2084 at 15:02 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 369 564 km (229 636 mi) away from Earth. It is 7 056 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 792 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after its descending node on 17 March 2084 at 04:22 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 March 2084 at 08:50 in ♑ Capricorn.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 20:57 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.978°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.857° in its northern standstill point on 10 April 2084 at 10:37 in ♊ Gemini.
After 8 days on 5 April 2084 at 05:52 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
