Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 2 November 2045 at 02:09.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2045 after 19 days on 24 November 2045 at 11:43.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 566 of Meeus index or 1519 from Brown series.
Length of current 566 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 567 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠34.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠58.5°. 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 21:44, this is 15 days after last apogee on 20 October 2045 at 04:05 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 16 November 2045 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 368 185 km (228 780 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 677 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 171 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 2 November 2045 at 17:28 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 November 2045 at 00:56 in ♒ Aquarius.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 29 October 2045 at 17:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.401°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.320° in the next southern standstill on 11 November 2045 at 15:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 4 days on 8 November 2045 at 21:49 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
