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 ∠12° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1948" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2084 after 20 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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 27 March 2084 at 14:45 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 April 2084 at 15:02 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 367 927 km (228 619 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 434 km (251 304 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 30 March 2084 at 08:50 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 April 2084 at 07:00 in ♋ Cancer.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 27 March 2084 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.978°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.857° in the next northern standstill on 10 April 2084 at 10:37 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 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.
