Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 5 April 2084 at 05:52.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2084 after 11 days on 20 April 2084 at 17:52.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1042 of Meeus index or 1995 from Brown series.
Length of current 1042 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 40 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1043 length.
Length of current synodic month is 56 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 7 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠92.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠128.4°. 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°).
12 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 April 2084 at 15:02 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 403 567 km (250 765 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 434 km (251 304 mi).
10 days 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 April 2084 at 07:00 in ♋ Cancer.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 27 March 2084 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.978°. Next day 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 11 days on 20 April 2084 at 17:52 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
