Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1934" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2060 after 13 days on 16 February 2060 at 09:56.
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.

29 days, 10 hours and 49 minutes is the length of new lunation 743. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 744 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠323.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠342.5°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 23 January 2060 at 16:37 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 4 February 2060 at 10:39 in ♓ Pisces.

7 days after its descending node on 26 January 2060 at 11:07 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 February 2060 at 08:15 in ♉ Taurus.

2 days after previous South standstill on 30 January 2060 at 15:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.245°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.319° in the next northern standstill on 12 February 2060 at 09:28 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
