Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1878" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2096 after 13 days on 8 February 2096 at 09:50.
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 09:45 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1188 of Meeus index or 2141 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes is the length of new lunation 1188. It is 2 hours and 18 minutes longer than next lunation 1189 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠291.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠319.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
7 days after point of apogee on 17 January 2096 at 20:30 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 January 2096 at 12:42 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 381 673 km (237 161 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 672 km (229 704 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 21 January 2096 at 00:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 February 2096 at 02:17 in ♊ Gemini.

2 days after previous South standstill on 23 January 2096 at 11:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.665°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.721° in the next northern standstill on 5 February 2096 at 10:13 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
