Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2064 after 14 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.
At 07:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 793 of Meeus index or 1746 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes is the length of new lunation 793. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2064. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes longer than next lunation 794 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠181.6°. 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°).
13 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 February 2064 at 18:41 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 403 794 km (250 906 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 266 km (252 442 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 16 February 2064 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 March 2064 at 02:40 in ♌ Leo.

5 days after previous South standstill on 12 February 2064 at 02:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.877°. Next 9 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.
