Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2084 after 14 days on 17 July 2084 at 17:01.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 01:38 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1045 of Meeus index or 1998 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 26 minutes is the length of new lunation 1045. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2084. It is 45 minutes longer than next lunation 1046 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠180.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠203.8°. 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 apogee on this date at 00:38, this is 14 days after last perigee on 18 June 2084 at 20:15 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 17 July 2084 at 06:12 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 406 487 km (252 579 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2084. It is 1 079 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 222 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 17:59 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 17 July 2084 at 07:42 in ♑ Capricorn.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 1 July 2084 at 04:53 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.643°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.650° in the next southern standstill on 15 July 2084 at 08:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
