Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 12 December 2084 at 03:19.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2085 after 28 days on 10 January 2085 at 22:42.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
13 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 December 2084 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 403 709 km (250 853 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 775 km (252 137 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 19:14 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 27 December 2084 at 16:18 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.
1 day after previous North standstill on 12 December 2084 at 00:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.896°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.910° in the next southern standstill on 26 December 2084 at 05:43 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 27 December 2084 at 09:07 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
