Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 21 July 2045 at 01:52.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1846" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2045 after 5 days on 28 July 2045 at 22:11.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 15 July 2045 at 07:12 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 July 2045 at 02:00 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 388 344 km (241 306 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 198 km (252 400 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 16 July 2045 at 11:05 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 July 2045 at 07:42 in ♒ Aquarius.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 12 July 2045 at 12:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.744°. Next day 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 5 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.
