Moon phase on 18 June 2084 Sunday is Full Moon, 15 days old Moon is in Sagittarius.Share this page: twitter facebook linkedin
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2084.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1044 of Meeus index or 1997 from Brown series.
Length of current 1044 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1045 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠157°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠180.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 20:15, this is 13 days after last apogee on 5 June 2084 at 20:10 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 3 July 2084 at 00:38 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 357 416 km (222 088 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2084. It is 5 092 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 991 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after its descending node on 6 June 2084 at 12:27 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 19 June 2084 at 20:57 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.
1 day after previous South standstill on 17 June 2084 at 21:43 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.635°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.643° in the next northern standstill on 1 July 2084 at 04:53 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
