Crescent ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 16 May 2045 at 18:26.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2045 after 10 days on 30 May 2045 at 17:52.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 561 of Meeus index or 1514 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 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 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠305.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠328°.
Moon is at perigee at 10:22. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 8 May 2045 at 09:24 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 5 June 2045 at 03:25 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 367 210 km (228 174 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 702 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 146 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after ascending node on 9 May 2045 at 21:30 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 23 May 2045 at 02:17 in ♌ Leo.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 18 May 2045 at 18:47 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.745°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.697° at the point of next southern standstill on 31 May 2045 at 22:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 10 days on 30 May 2045 at 17:52 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
