Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1881" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2030 after 15 days on 18 February 2030 at 06:20.
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 16:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 372 of Meeus index or 1325 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠67.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠104.1°.
4 days after point of perigee on 28 January 2030 at 16:03 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 February 2030 at 06:06 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 380 991 km (236 737 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 292 km (251 215 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 30 January 2030 at 03:28 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 February 2030 at 04:07 in ♊ Gemini.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 29 January 2030 at 16:28 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.491°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.393° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 February 2030 at 17:24 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
