Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1841" and ∠1949".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2092.
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 1138 of Meeus index or 2091 from Brown series.
Length of current 1138 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 26 minutes. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 18 January 2092 at 05:57 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 February 2092 at 09:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 389 412 km (241 969 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 678 km (229 707 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 11 January 2092 at 13:52 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 26 January 2092 at 01:05 in ♌ Leo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 22 January 2092 at 14:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.448°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.423° in the next southern standstill on 4 February 2092 at 17:30 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
