Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1792" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2045 after 11 days on 1 February 2045 at 21:05.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 3 days 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.
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.
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.
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°).
3 days 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 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 February 2045 at 08:43 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 400 013 km (248 557 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 106 km (221 895 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 00:16 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 3 February 2045 at 02:18 in ♍ Virgo.

6 days after previous South standstill on 15 January 2045 at 09:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.098°. Next 8 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.
After 11 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.
