Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1905" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2039 after 15 days on 9 February 2039 at 03:39.
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 13:36 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 483 of Meeus index or 1436 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 41 minutes is the length of new lunation 483. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 484 length.
Length of current synodic month is 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠51.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠83.5°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 21 January 2039 at 05:35 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 February 2039 at 01:38 in ♉ Taurus.

2 days after its descending node on 22 January 2039 at 05:13 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 February 2039 at 05:55 in ♋ Cancer.

1 day after previous South standstill on 22 January 2039 at 23:27 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.890°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.931° in the next northern standstill on 6 February 2039 at 03:54 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
