Crescent ♒ Aquarius
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 ∠1953" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2015 after 14 days on 3 February 2015 at 23:09.
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 13:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 186 of Meeus index or 1139 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 34 minutes. It is 45 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 2 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 59 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠338.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠354.5°.
10 days after point of apogee on 9 January 2015 at 18:17 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 January 2015 at 20:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 367 050 km (228 074 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 643 km (223 472 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 12 January 2015 at 15:33 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 25 January 2015 at 10:23 in ♈ Aries.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 18 January 2015 at 06:17 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.577°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.513° at the point of next northern standstill on 31 January 2015 at 00:59 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
