Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1888" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2083 after 15 days on 2 February 2083 at 18:20.
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 03:50 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1027 of Meeus index or 1980 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 25 minutes is the length of new lunation 1027. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 1028 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠55.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠89.1°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 14 January 2083 at 11:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 January 2083 at 10:16 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 379 635 km (235 894 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 447 km (251 312 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 6 January 2083 at 17:32 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 January 2083 at 14:07 in ♒ Aquarius.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 15 January 2083 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.465°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.490° in the next northern standstill on 29 January 2083 at 19:57 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
