Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days 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 ∠14° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2045 after 10 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 4 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 17 June 2045 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 July 2045 at 18:04 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 363 298 km (225 743 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 608 km (252 033 mi).
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2045 at 04:27 in ♌ Leo.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 15 June 2045 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.696°. Next 9 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 10 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.
