Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1799" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2073 after 15 days on 22 February 2073 at 07:26.
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 08:11 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 903 of Meeus index or 1856 from Brown series.
29 days, 17 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 903. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter than next lunation 904 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 17 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠105.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠140.9°. 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 25 January 2073 at 21:07 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 February 2073 at 19:47 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 398 491 km (247 611 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 844 km (252 180 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 25 January 2073 at 14:53 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 February 2073 at 00:44 in ♓ Pisces.

2 days after previous South standstill on 3 February 2073 at 17:41 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.012°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.995° in the next northern standstill on 18 February 2073 at 09:14 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
