Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 18 January 2045 at 04:25.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1772"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1950".

Snow Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2045 after 13 days on 1 February 2045 at 21:05.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 557 / 1510

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 557 of Meeus index or 1510 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.81 days

Length of current 557 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 26 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2045. It is 2 hours and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 558 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠182.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠182.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠207.6°. 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°).

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 17 January 2045 at 22:35 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 1 February 2045 at 08:43 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 487 km

Moon is 404 487 km (251 337 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 106 km (221 895 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 6 January 2045 at 16:49 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 January 2045 at 00:16 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 15 January 2045 at 09:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.098°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.156° in the next northern standstill on 29 January 2045 at 16:53 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 1 February 2045 at 21:05 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
