Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 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 about ∠13° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2045 after 24 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 20 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:10, this is 12 days after last apogee on 16 November 2045 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 14 December 2045 at 21:16 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 369 747 km (229 750 mi) away from Earth. It is 7 239 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 609 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 17:44 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 13 December 2045 at 03:42 in ♒ Aquarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 25 November 2045 at 23:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.257°. Next 9 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 8 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.
