Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 4 May 2084 at 19:32.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2084 after 10 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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1043 of Meeus index or 1996 from Brown series.
Length of current 1043 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 41 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1044 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠128.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠157°. 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 apogee on this date at 08:15, this is 15 days after last perigee on 23 April 2084 at 11:07 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 21 May 2084 at 12:03 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 281 km (251 830 mi) away from Earth. It is 127 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 428 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 May 2084 at 08:57 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 7 May 2084 at 17:28 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.673°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.645° in the next southern standstill on 21 May 2084 at 11:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 10 days on 20 May 2084 at 02:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
