Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 27 August 2045 at 14:08.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1801" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2045 after 26 days on 26 September 2045 at 06:11.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
4 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 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2045 at 02:20 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 397 886 km (247 235 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 804 km (222 950 mi).
3 days 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 September 2045 at 07:56 in ♌ Leo.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 21 August 2045 at 15:27 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.803°. Next 5 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.
After 11 days on 11 September 2045 at 01:27 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
