Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 20 December 2084 at 08:44.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2085 after 15 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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 15 December 2084 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 December 2084 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 367 289 km (228 223 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 219 km (222 587 mi).
12 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 December 2084 at 16:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 05:43 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-24.910°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠24.917° in its northern standstill point on 8 January 2085 at 06:01 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day 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.
