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 about ∠12° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1947".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2094.
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 1163 of Meeus index or 2116 from Brown series.
Length of current 1163 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 38 minutes. It is 37 minutes longer than next lunation 1164 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠352.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠7.9°. 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 apogee on this date at 11:51, this is 14 days after last perigee on 17 January 2094 at 05:33 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 14 February 2094 at 18:39 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 394 km (252 522 mi) away from Earth. It is 986 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 315 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
2 days after its ascending node on 29 January 2094 at 09:03 in ♋ Cancer, 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 12 February 2094 at 12:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 28 January 2094 at 23:58 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.474°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.529° in the next southern standstill on 12 February 2094 at 06:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
