Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 30 May 2045 at 17:52.
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 ∠14° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1780" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2045 after 26 days on 29 June 2045 at 07:16.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
13 days after point of perigee on 20 May 2045 at 10:22 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 June 2045 at 03:25 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 402 735 km (250 248 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 694 km (251 465 mi).
10 days after descending node on 23 May 2045 at 02:17 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 5 June 2045 at 23:31 in ♒ Aquarius.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 31 May 2045 at 22:23 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.697°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.696° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 June 2045 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 days on 15 June 2045 at 03:05 in ♊ Gemini 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.
