Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days 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 ∠19° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2085 after 27 days on 10 January 2085 at 22:42.
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 17 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°).
14 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 December 2084 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 405 073 km (251 701 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 775 km (252 137 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 13 December 2084 at 19:14 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 December 2084 at 16:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 12 December 2084 at 00:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.896°. Next 11 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 12 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.
