Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 18 January 2083 at 03:50.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1864" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2083 after 14 days on 2 February 2083 at 18:20.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1027 of Meeus index or 1980 from Brown series.
Length of current 1027 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 25 minutes. 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°).
5 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 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 January 2083 at 10:16 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 384 497 km (238 915 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 447 km (251 312 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 14:07 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 3 February 2083 at 00:47 in ♌ Leo.
At 14:07 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
3 days after previous South standstill on 15 January 2083 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.465°. Next 10 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.
After 14 days on 2 February 2083 at 18:20 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
