Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 24 April 2045 at 07:12.
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 ∠6° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2045 after 4 days on 1 May 2045 at 05:52.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 560 of Meeus index or 1513 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute. It is 2 hours and 22 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 25 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠274.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠305.3°.
1 day after point of perigee on 24 April 2045 at 22:26 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 May 2045 at 09:24 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 365 575 km (227 158 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 121 km (251 109 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 01:40 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 9 May 2045 at 21:30 in ♒ Aquarius.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 21 April 2045 at 12:18 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.903°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.817° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 May 2045 at 15:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 4 days on 1 May 2045 at 05:52 in ♏ Scorpio the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
