Moon phase on 12 December 2084 Tuesday is Full Moon, 15 days old Moon is in Gemini.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.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1949".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 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 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°).
12 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 December 2084 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 401 461 km (249 456 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 775 km (252 137 mi).
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 December 2084 at 19:14 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 00:00 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.896°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2084. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.910° in its southern standstill point on 26 December 2084 at 05:43 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
