Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 4 December 2084 at 13:57.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1904" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2084 after 5 days on 12 December 2084 at 03:19.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
6 days 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 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 December 2084 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 376 392 km (233 879 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 775 km (252 137 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 30 November 2084 at 06:21 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 December 2084 at 19:14 in ♋ Cancer.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 28 November 2084 at 18:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.903°. Next 5 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 5 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.
