Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1917" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2057 after 15 days on 19 February 2057 at 11:56.
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 22:10 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 706 of Meeus index or 1659 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 14 minutes is the length of new lunation 706. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 707 length.
Length of current synodic month is 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠48.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠80°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 31 January 2057 at 18:59 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 February 2057 at 14:05 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 373 931 km (232 350 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 414 km (251 291 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 1 February 2057 at 14:12 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 February 2057 at 14:03 in ♋ Cancer.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 1 February 2057 at 14:10 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.875°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.925° in the next northern standstill on 15 February 2057 at 14:48 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
