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 ∠1969" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2032 after 14 days on 26 February 2032 at 07:43.
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 06:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 397 of Meeus index or 1350 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 1 minute is the length of new lunation 397. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2032. It is 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 398 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠6.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠23.4°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 10 February 2032 at 20:46 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 February 2032 at 18:41 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 363 957 km (226 152 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 290 km (252 457 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 4 February 2032 at 11:35 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 February 2032 at 21:13 in ♉ Taurus.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 7 February 2032 at 03:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.110°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.009° in the next northern standstill on 19 February 2032 at 21:21 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
