Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1795" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2080 after 14 days on 5 March 2080 at 23:29.
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 20:11 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 991 of Meeus index or 1944 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 55 minutes is the length of new lunation 991. It is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than next lunation 992 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠228.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠264.5°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 16 February 2080 at 11:11 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 March 2080 at 11:22 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 399 229 km (248 069 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 171 km (226 285 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 9 February 2080 at 12:47 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 February 2080 at 02:16 in ♈ Aries.

4 days after previous South standstill on 15 February 2080 at 21:16 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.419°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.509° in the next northern standstill on 29 February 2080 at 22:04 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
