Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 24 November 2045 at 11:43.
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 first ∠0° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1920" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2045 after 27 days on 24 December 2045 at 00:49.
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 567 of Meeus index or 1520 from Brown series.
Length of current 567 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes. It is 2 hours and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 568 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠58.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠92.2°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 16 November 2045 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 November 2045 at 18:10 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 373 337 km (231 981 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 747 km (229 750 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 16 November 2045 at 00:56 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 November 2045 at 17:44 in ♌ Leo.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 25 November 2045 at 23:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.257°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.229° in the next southern standstill on 8 December 2045 at 23:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 11 days on 8 December 2045 at 11:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
