Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 26 March 2045 at 00:56.
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 ∠10° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2045 after 2 days on 1 April 2045 at 18:43.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 559 of Meeus index or 1512 from Brown series.
Length of current 559 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 12 minutes. It is 3 hours and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 560 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 28 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 35 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠238.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠274.3°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 29 March 2045 at 17:25 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 April 2045 at 13:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 366 844 km (227 946 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 371 km (251 264 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 29 March 2045 at 22:04 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 April 2045 at 18:23 in ♒ Aquarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 25 March 2045 at 07:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.089°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.012° in the next southern standstill on 7 April 2045 at 06:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 1 April 2045 at 18:43 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
