Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2045 after 1 day on 1 February 2045 at 21:05.
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.
The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
13 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 February 2045 at 08:43 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 363 377 km (225 792 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 106 km (221 895 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 21 January 2045 at 00:16 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 February 2045 at 02:18 in ♍ Virgo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 29 January 2045 at 16:53 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.156°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.184° in the next southern standstill on 11 February 2045 at 15:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day 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.
