Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2036 after 14 days on 11 February 2036 at 22:09.
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 10:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 446 of Meeus index or 1399 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes is the length of new lunation 446. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2036. It is 2 hours and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 447 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠195.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠223.9°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 26 January 2036 at 16:05 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 February 2036 at 20:55 in ♋ Cancer.

12 days after its ascending node on 15 January 2036 at 16:39 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 January 2036 at 22:45 in ♒ Aquarius.

2 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2036 at 21:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.277°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.249° in the next northern standstill on 8 February 2036 at 23:26 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
