Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2076 after 15 days on 19 February 2076 at 23:49.
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 21:01 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 941 of Meeus index or 1894 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 23 minutes is the length of new lunation 941. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2076. It is longer than next lunation 942 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 21 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 48 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.4°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:52, this is 14 days after last apogee on 20 January 2076 at 21:24 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 17 February 2076 at 01:30 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 357 345 km (222 044 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 163 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 011 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after its descending node on 2 February 2076 at 04:01 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 February 2076 at 04:47 in ♋ Cancer.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 2 February 2076 at 15:14 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.547°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.589° in the next northern standstill on 15 February 2076 at 19:53 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
