Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1837" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2097 after 13 days on 26 February 2097 at 08:02.
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 07:49 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1201 of Meeus index or 2154 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 8 minutes is the length of new lunation 1201. It is 2 hours and 38 minutes longer than next lunation 1202 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠257.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠293.2°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 6 February 2097 at 09:39 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 February 2097 at 00:22 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 390 213 km (242 467 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 662 km (229 076 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 4 February 2097 at 07:36 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 February 2097 at 08:27 in ♉ Taurus.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 8 February 2097 at 13:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.061°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.174° in the next northern standstill on 22 February 2097 at 00:30 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
