Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2080 after 14 days on 5 February 2080 at 12:21.
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 01:55 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 990 of Meeus index or 1943 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 16 minutes is the length of new lunation 990. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2080. It is 2 hours and 21 minutes longer than next lunation 991 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 32 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 31 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠199.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠228.8°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 19 January 2080 at 22:45 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 February 2080 at 07:30 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 403 216 km (250 547 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 104 km (223 137 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 13 January 2080 at 09:00 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 January 2080 at 00:20 in ♈ Aries.

2 days after previous South standstill on 19 January 2080 at 15:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.251°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.345° in the next northern standstill on 2 February 2080 at 14:34 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
