Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2041 after 14 days on 16 February 2041 at 02:21.
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 05:43 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 508 of Meeus index or 1461 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 56 minutes is the length of new lunation 508. It is 6 minutes longer than next lunation 509 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠14°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:46, this is 13 days after last apogee on 18 January 2041 at 23:16 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 14 February 2041 at 23:03 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 356 610 km (221 587 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2041. It is 5 898 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 185 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after its descending node on 26 January 2041 at 15:09 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 February 2041 at 00:39 in ♉ Taurus.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 29 January 2041 at 22:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.843°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.907° in the next northern standstill on 11 February 2041 at 21:04 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
