Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1949".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2084.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1039 of Meeus index or 1992 from Brown series.
Length of current 1039 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 36 minutes. It is 35 minutes shorter than next lunation 1040 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠15°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠33.6°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 19 January 2084 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 February 2084 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 401 689 km (249 598 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 658 km (225 345 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 16:11 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 4 February 2084 at 23:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 19 January 2084 at 11:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.337°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.324° in the next southern standstill on 2 February 2084 at 09:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
