Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2045 after 16 days on 25 October 2045 at 21:31.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 565 of Meeus index or 1518 from Brown series.
Length of current 565 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 9 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes shorter than next lunation 566 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠16.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠34.3°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 8 October 2045 at 08:16 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 October 2045 at 04:05 in ♒ Aquarius.

2 days after its descending node on 6 October 2045 at 15:11 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 October 2045 at 23:03 in ♒ Aquarius.

6 days after previous North standstill on 2 October 2045 at 12:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.609°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.520° in the next southern standstill on 15 October 2045 at 06:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 10 October 2045 at 10:37 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
