Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1788" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2065 after 12 days on 20 February 2065 at 23:11.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 805 of Meeus index or 1758 from Brown series.
Length of current 805 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 13 minutes. It is 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 806 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠92.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠129.8°. 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 27 January 2065 at 15:26 in ♎ Libra. 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 11 February 2065 at 18:57 in ♈ Aries.

3 days after its ascending node on 4 February 2065 at 14:31 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 February 2065 at 01:44 in ♌ Leo.

7 days after previous South standstill on 1 February 2065 at 07:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.842°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.810° in the next northern standstill on 15 February 2065 at 15:35 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 20 February 2065 at 23:11 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
