Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1816" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2082 after 15 days on 13 February 2082 at 06:16.
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 20:46 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1015 of Meeus index or 1968 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 2 minutes is the length of new lunation 1015. It is 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 1016 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠122.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠154.1°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 17 January 2082 at 16:31 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 February 2082 at 18:11 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 394 661 km (245 231 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 315 km (251 851 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 17 January 2082 at 15:31 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 January 2082 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2082 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.230°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.278° in the next northern standstill on 9 February 2082 at 02:32 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
