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 ∠16° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2084 after 17 days on 20 May 2084 at 02:36.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
9 days 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 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 May 2084 at 08:15 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 387 399 km (240 719 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 281 km (251 830 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 26 April 2084 at 09:18 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 May 2084 at 08:57 in ♋ Cancer.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 24 April 2084 at 03:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.760°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.673° in the next northern standstill on 7 May 2084 at 17:28 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 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.
