Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 27 November 2084 at 21:39.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2084 after 11 days on 12 December 2084 at 03:19.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1050 of Meeus index or 2003 from Brown series.
Length of current 1050 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes. It is 28 minutes longer than next lunation 1051 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠326.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠345.2°. 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 29 November 2084 at 22:16 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 15 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 December 2084 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 363 869 km (226 098 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 15 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 775 km (252 137 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 06:21 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 13 December 2084 at 19:14 in ♋ Cancer.
At 06:21 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous South standstill on 28 November 2084 at 18:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.903°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.896° in the next northern standstill on 12 December 2084 at 00:00 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 12 December 2084 at 03:19 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
