Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 1 May 2045 at 05:52.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2045 after 26 days on 30 May 2045 at 17:52.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
9 days 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 May 2045 at 09:24 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 398 575 km (247 663 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 121 km (251 109 mi).
8 days after descending node on 26 April 2045 at 01:40 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 9 May 2045 at 21:30 in ♒ Aquarius.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 15:12 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-27.817°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠27.745° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 18 May 2045 at 18:47.
In 12 days on 16 May 2045 at 18:26 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
