Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1792" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2045 after 15 days on 1 April 2045 at 18:43.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 13 March 2045 at 18:23 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 March 2045 at 17:25 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 399 987 km (248 540 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 846 km (227 326 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 16 March 2045 at 12:51 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 March 2045 at 22:04 in ♌ Leo.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 10 March 2045 at 22:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.164°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.089° in the next northern standstill on 25 March 2045 at 07:00 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 18 March 2045 at 17:15 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
