Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1832" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2083 after 14 days on 4 March 2083 at 07:34.
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 18:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1028 of Meeus index or 1981 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 41 minutes is the length of new lunation 1028. It is 32 minutes shorter than next lunation 1029 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠89.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠126.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 8 February 2083 at 11:16 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 23 February 2083 at 07:16 in ♉ Taurus.

1 day after its ascending node on 15 February 2083 at 23:06 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 March 2083 at 10:14 in ♌ Leo.

5 days after previous South standstill on 11 February 2083 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.496°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.467° in the next northern standstill on 26 February 2083 at 04:43 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
