Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1806" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2064 after 15 days on 2 February 2064 at 21:37.
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 12:37 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 792 of Meeus index or 1745 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 26 minutes is the length of new lunation 792. It is 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 793 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠125.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.8°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 7 January 2064 at 03:30 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 January 2064 at 05:31 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 396 808 km (246 565 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 424 km (251 919 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 7 January 2064 at 06:27 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 January 2064 at 17:11 in ♒ Aquarius.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 15 January 2064 at 20:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.815°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.857° in the next northern standstill on 30 January 2064 at 10:58 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
