Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1900".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2045.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 564 of Meeus index or 1517 from Brown series.
Length of current 564 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 48 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 565 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠0.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠16.2°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 26 August 2045 at 04:13 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2045 at 02:20 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 403 413 km (250 669 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 804 km (222 950 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 26 August 2045 at 14:00 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 September 2045 at 07:56 in ♌ Leo.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 21 August 2045 at 15:27 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.803°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.764° in the next northern standstill on 5 September 2045 at 06:33 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
