Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 15 June 2045 at 03:05.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2045 after 12 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 562 of Meeus index or 1515 from Brown series.
Length of current 562 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 24 minutes. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 563 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠328°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠345.4°. 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°).
11 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 June 2045 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 365 637 km (227 196 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 268 km (225 103 mi).
10 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2045 at 04:27 in ♌ Leo.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 15 June 2045 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.696°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.699° in the next southern standstill on 28 June 2045 at 04:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 29 June 2045 at 07:16 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
