Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 24 February 2045 at 16:37.
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 ∠16° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2045 after 1 day on 3 March 2045 at 07:52.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 558 of Meeus index or 1511 from Brown series.
Length of current 558 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 24 minutes. It is 3 hours and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 559 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 23 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠207.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠238.6°. 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 is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:43, this is 15 days after last apogee on 14 February 2045 at 02:57 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 13 March 2045 at 18:23 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 360 563 km (224 043 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 945 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 793 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after its ascending node on 17 February 2045 at 06:00 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 March 2045 at 13:33 in ♌ Leo.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 26 February 2045 at 01:04 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.188°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.164° in the next southern standstill on 10 March 2045 at 22:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 3 March 2045 at 07:52 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
