Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2054 after 15 days on 22 February 2054 at 06:46.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 668 of Meeus index or 1621 from Brown series.
Length of current 668 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2054. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 669 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 56 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠168.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠193.2°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 06:08, this is 13 days after last perigee on 23 January 2054 at 19:38 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 21 February 2054 at 07:51 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 406 527 km (252 604 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 119 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 182 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 days after its ascending node on 26 January 2054 at 01:32 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 February 2054 at 07:02 in ♓ Pisces.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 4 February 2054 at 02:34 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.688°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.654° in the next northern standstill on 18 February 2054 at 10:09 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 7 February 2054 at 18:14 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
