Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 7 June 2045 at 20:23.
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 ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1879" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2045 after 16 days on 29 June 2045 at 07:16.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 5 June 2045 at 03:25 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 June 2045 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 381 463 km (237 030 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 268 km (225 103 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 5 June 2045 at 23:31 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2045 at 04:27 in ♌ Leo.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 31 May 2045 at 22:23 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.697°. Next 2 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 2 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.
