Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 29 October 2084 at 09:47.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2084 after 8 days on 12 November 2084 at 10:10.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1049 of Meeus index or 2002 from Brown series.
Length of current 1049 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes. It is 24 minutes longer than next lunation 1050 length.
Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠301.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠326.7°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 2 November 2084 at 09:00 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 18 November 2084 at 03:12 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 363 415 km (225 816 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 836 km (251 553 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 01:21 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 16 November 2084 at 13:34 in ♋ Cancer.
At 01:21 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
2 days after previous South standstill on 1 November 2084 at 10:37 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.986°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.920° in the next northern standstill on 14 November 2084 at 17:16 in ♊ Gemini.
After 8 days on 12 November 2084 at 10:10 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
