Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2064 after 15 days on 3 March 2064 at 08:19.
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.

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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 4 February 2064 at 06:21 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 February 2064 at 18:41 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 23:59 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 2 March 2064 at 02:40 in ♌ Leo.
At 23:59 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
4 days after previous South standstill on 12 February 2064 at 02:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.877°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.859° in the next northern standstill on 26 February 2064 at 20:13 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
