Crescent ♓ Pisces
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2002 after 14 days on 27 February 2002 at 09:17.
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 07:41 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 26 of Meeus index or 979 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2002. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠155.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠180.3°.
13 days after point of perigee on 30 January 2002 at 09:02 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 14 February 2002 at 22:22 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 403 497 km (250 721 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 361 km (252 501 mi).
4 days after descending node on 7 February 2002 at 15:33 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 February 2002 at 06:26 in ♊ Gemini.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 8 February 2002 at 20:59 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.309°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.418° at the point of next northern standstill on 23 February 2002 at 11:48 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
