Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1865" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2074 after 15 days on 11 February 2074 at 21:05.
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 06:37 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 916 of Meeus index or 1869 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 23 minutes is the length of new lunation 916. It is 57 minutes shorter than next lunation 917 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠72.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠110°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 21 January 2074 at 13:42 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 February 2074 at 14:44 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 14:36 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 11 February 2074 at 01:16 in ♌ Leo.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2074 at 06:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.239°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.239° in the next northern standstill on 8 February 2074 at 15:47 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
