Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius 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 14 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 04:25 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 557 of Meeus index or 1510 from Brown series.
The length of the 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 the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 6 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 21 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠182.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠207.6°.
1 day after point of apogee on 17 January 2045 at 22:35 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 February 2045 at 08:43 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 405 397 km (251 902 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 106 km (221 895 mi).
11 days after descending node on 6 January 2045 at 16:49 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 January 2045 at 00:16 in ♓ Pisces.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 15 January 2045 at 09:52 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.098°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.156° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 January 2045 at 16:53 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
