Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1885" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2043 after 14 days on 23 February 2043 at 21:58.
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 21:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 533 of Meeus index or 1486 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 2 minutes is the length of new lunation 533. It is 2 hours and 5 minutes longer than next lunation 534 length.
Length of current synodic month is 42 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 27 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠303°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠327.1°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 1 February 2043 at 17:22 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 February 2043 at 17:40 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 380 309 km (236 313 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 963 km (228 642 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 30 January 2043 at 09:53 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 February 2043 at 07:12 in ♈ Aries.

3 days after previous South standstill on 6 February 2043 at 04:21 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.451°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.529° in the next northern standstill on 19 February 2043 at 03:26 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
