Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 27 December 2084 at 09:07.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2085 after 13 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1051 of Meeus index or 2004 from Brown series.
Length of current 1051 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2084. It is 34 minutes longer than next lunation 1052 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠345.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠0.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:57, this is 12 days after last apogee on 15 December 2084 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 12 January 2085 at 05:03 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 358 219 km (222 587 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 289 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 137 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 27 December 2084 at 16:18 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 January 2085 at 01:55 in ♋ Cancer.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 26 December 2084 at 05:43 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.910°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.917° in the next northern standstill on 8 January 2085 at 06:01 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 10 January 2085 at 22:42 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
