Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 20 April 2084 at 17:52.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2084 after 25 days on 20 May 2084 at 02:36.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 23 April 2084 at 11:07 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 May 2084 at 08:15 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 363 519 km (225 880 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 281 km (251 830 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 13 April 2084 at 07:00 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 April 2084 at 09:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 03:07 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.760°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.673° in its northern standstill point on 7 May 2084 at 17:28 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 4 May 2084 at 19:32 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
