Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 14 July 2045 at 10:28.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2045 after 13 days on 28 July 2045 at 22:11.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 563 of Meeus index or 1516 from Brown series.
Length of current 563 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 11 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2045. It is 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 564 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠345.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠0.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:12, this is 12 days after last apogee on 2 July 2045 at 18:04 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 30 July 2045 at 02:00 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 358 581 km (222 812 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 927 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 775 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after its ascending node on 3 July 2045 at 02:35 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 16 July 2045 at 11:05 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.
2 days after previous North standstill on 12 July 2045 at 12:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.744°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.770° in the next southern standstill on 25 July 2045 at 09:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 28 July 2045 at 22:11 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
