Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 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 ∠20° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2045 after 23 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 20 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.
Length of current 561 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes longer than next lunation 562 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠305.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠328°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 03:25, this is 15 days after last perigee on 20 May 2045 at 10:22 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 17 June 2045 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 404 694 km (251 465 mi) away from Earth. It is 714 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 015 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 23:31 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 19 June 2045 at 04:27 in ♌ Leo.
At 23:31 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
4 days after previous South standstill on 31 May 2045 at 22:23 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.697°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.696° in the next northern standstill on 15 June 2045 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini.
After 9 days on 15 June 2045 at 03:05 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
