Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1908" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2034 after 14 days on 5 March 2034 at 02:10.
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 23:10 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 422 of Meeus index or 1375 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 4 minutes is the length of new lunation 422. It is 1 hour and 53 minutes longer than next lunation 423 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 29 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠317.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠337.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
8 days after point of apogee on 9 February 2034 at 21:37 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 February 2034 at 15:30 in ♈ Aries.

11 days after its ascending node on 7 February 2034 at 08:04 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 February 2034 at 05:47 in ♈ Aries.

4 days after previous South standstill on 14 February 2034 at 10:08 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.256°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.195° in the next northern standstill on 27 February 2034 at 06:42 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
