Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1911" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2092 after 15 days on 24 January 2092 at 14:55.
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 01:37 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1138 of Meeus index or 2091 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 26 minutes is the length of new lunation 1138. It is 1 hour and 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 1139 length.
Length of current synodic month is 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠69.4°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 6 January 2092 at 12:22 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 January 2092 at 05:57 in ♉ Taurus.

10 days after its ascending node on 29 December 2091 at 20:00 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 January 2092 at 13:52 in ♒ Aquarius.

1 day after previous South standstill on 8 January 2092 at 08:40 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.466°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.448° in the next northern standstill on 22 January 2092 at 14:14 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
