Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2045 after 15 days on 1 February 2045 at 21:05.
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 08:53 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 556 of Meeus index or 1509 from Brown series.
29 days, 19 hours and 32 minutes is the length of new lunation 556. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2045. It is 6 minutes longer than next lunation 557 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠182.1°. 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 is reaching point of apogee on this date at 22:35, this is 14 days after last perigee on 3 January 2045 at 19:25 in ♋ Cancer. 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 1 February 2045 at 08:43 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 406 609 km (252 655 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2045. It is 1 201 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 100 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 January 2045 at 00:16 in ♓ Pisces.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 15 January 2045 at 09:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.098°. Next 12 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
