Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1849" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2070 after 14 days on 25 February 2070 at 02:31.
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 11:22 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 866 of Meeus index or 1819 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 866. It is 2 hours and 30 minutes longer than next lunation 867 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 17 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠244.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠282°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 4 February 2070 at 01:19 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 February 2070 at 15:55 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 387 682 km (240 894 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 239 km (230 056 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 1 February 2070 at 20:26 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 February 2070 at 19:12 in ♈ Aries.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 6 February 2070 at 10:23 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.101°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.990° in the next northern standstill on 19 February 2070 at 18:41 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
