Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2051 after 14 days on 25 February 2051 at 14:53.
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 06:41 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 632 of Meeus index or 1585 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 11 minutes is the length of new lunation 632. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than next lunation 633 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠334.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠351.3°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 31 January 2051 at 19:46 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 February 2051 at 18:54 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 367 278 km (228 216 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 557 km (224 040 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 3 February 2051 at 07:49 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 February 2051 at 04:27 in ♉ Taurus.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 6 February 2051 at 23:17 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.572°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.472° in the next northern standstill on 19 February 2051 at 14:53 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
