Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2072 after 15 days on 4 February 2072 at 04:55.
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 11:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 890 of Meeus index or 1843 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 48 minutes is the length of new lunation 890. It is 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 891 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠138.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠166.3°. 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 6 January 2072 at 17:46 in ♋ Cancer. 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 21 January 2072 at 20:00 in ♒ Aquarius.

9 days after its ascending node on 10 January 2072 at 03:26 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 January 2072 at 10:50 in ♓ Pisces.

1 day after previous South standstill on 18 January 2072 at 00:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.436°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.364° in the next northern standstill on 1 February 2072 at 09:58 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
