Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1861" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2052 after 14 days on 14 February 2052 at 18:21.
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 18:30 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 644 of Meeus index or 1597 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 6 minutes is the length of new lunation 644. It is 2 hours and 15 minutes longer than next lunation 645 length.
Length of current synodic month is 22 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 41 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠285.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠314.8°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 24 January 2052 at 12:51 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 February 2052 at 18:01 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 385 071 km (239 272 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 138 km (229 993 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 22 January 2052 at 12:23 in ♎ Libra, 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 5 February 2052 at 10:04 in ♈ Aries.

3 days after previous South standstill on 28 January 2052 at 05:17 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.646°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.554° in the next northern standstill on 10 February 2052 at 09:08 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
