Crescent ♓ Pisces
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February after 15 days on 25 February 2013 at 20:26.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1944".
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 07:20 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 162 of Meeus index or 1115 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 31 minutes is the length of new lunation 162. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes shorter than next lunation 163.
Length of current synodic month is 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠44.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly is ∠73.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months increases since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
2 days after point of perigee on 7 February 2013 at 12:09, lunar orbit gets wider while the Moon moves outward the Earth. It keeps this direction for next 8 days until it gets to the point of apogee on 19 February 2013 at 06:30.
Moon is 375 269 km (233 181 mi) away from Earth on this date. At previous perigee point before 2 days, distance is 365 314 km (226 996 mi). Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance reaches 404 475 km (251 329 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 4 February 2013 at 02:14, the Moon follows the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days untill it crosses the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 February 2013 at 02:57.
6 days after its beginning, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of current draconic month.
4 days after previous South standstill on 6 February 2013 at 00:27, when Moon reaches southern declination of ∠-20.704°, lunar orbit moves northward for the next 9 days to face North declination of ∠20.583° in the next northern standstill on 19 February 2013 at 13:35.
The Moon is in New Moon conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
