Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 20 January 2093 at 12:03.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2093 after 17 days on 11 February 2093 at 12:18.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1150 of Meeus index or 2103 from Brown series.
Length of current 1150 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. It is 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1151 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠6.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠22.9°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:37, this is 15 days after last apogee on 10 January 2093 at 05:43 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 6 February 2093 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 359 956 km (223 666 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 552 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 400 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after its ascending node on 13 January 2093 at 16:59 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 January 2093 at 22:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 09:00 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-20.833°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2093. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠20.836° in its northern standstill point on 8 February 2093 at 00:49 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 27 January 2093 at 03:22 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
