Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 18 days on 1 March 2067 at 04:42.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 829 of Meeus index or 1782 from Brown series.
Length of current 829 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 40 minutes. It is 9 minutes longer than next lunation 830 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠2.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠18.4°. 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 apogee on 28 January 2067 at 14:45 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 February 2067 at 19:54 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 02:51 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 23 February 2067 at 01:40 in ♊ Gemini.
At 02:51 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous South standstill on 9 February 2067 at 10:40 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.790°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.698° in the next northern standstill on 22 February 2067 at 07:51 in ♊ Gemini.
After 3 days on 13 February 2067 at 21:57 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
