Crescent ♓ Pisces
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2019 after 14 days on 19 February 2019 at 15:53.
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 21:04 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 236 of Meeus index or 1189 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. It is 2 hours and 13 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 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠175.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠200.2°.
Moon is at apogee at 09:26. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 21 January 2019 at 19:58 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 19 February 2019 at 09:06 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 406 556 km (252 622 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2019. It is 1 148 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 153 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
2 days after descending node on 3 February 2019 at 06:35 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 17 February 2019 at 09:42 in ♋ Cancer.
15 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 2 February 2019 at 00:48 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.547°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.590° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 February 2019 at 09:56 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
