Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1792" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2097 after 14 days on 27 January 2097 at 19:47.
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 15:00 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1200 of Meeus index or 2153 from Brown series.
29 days, 16 hours and 49 minutes is the length of new lunation 1200. It is 2 hours and 41 minutes longer than next lunation 1201 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠222.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠257.9°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 9 January 2097 at 15:16 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 January 2097 at 15:17 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 399 890 km (248 480 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 132 km (225 640 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 8 January 2097 at 05:58 in ♏ Scorpio, 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 22 January 2097 at 08:09 in ♉ Taurus.

1 day after previous South standstill on 12 January 2097 at 06:42 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.927°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.991° in the next northern standstill on 25 January 2097 at 17:18 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
