Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1948" and ∠1949".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2062.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 767 of Meeus index or 1720 from Brown series.
Length of current 767 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 18 minutes. It is 2 hours and 15 minutes longer than next lunation 768 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠201.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠232.2°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 23 January 2062 at 20:23 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 February 2062 at 22:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 368 041 km (228 690 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 649 km (252 059 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 16 January 2062 at 15:36 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 January 2062 at 04:17 in ♎ Libra.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 22 January 2062 at 20:38 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.481°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.542° in the next southern standstill on 5 February 2062 at 08:12 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
