Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 9 May 2045 at 02:51.
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 ∠17° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2045 after 19 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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
3 days after point of apogee on 8 May 2045 at 09:24 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 20 May 2045 at 10:22 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 400 476 km (248 844 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 210 km (228 174 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 9 May 2045 at 21:30 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 23 May 2045 at 02:17 in ♌ Leo.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 4 May 2045 at 15:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.817°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.745° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 May 2045 at 18:47 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 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.
