Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 8 December 2045 at 11:41.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2045 after 9 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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 568 of Meeus index or 1521 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 43 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠92.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠129.2°.
Moon is at apogee at 21:16. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 29 November 2045 at 18:10 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 26 December 2045 at 14:47 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 404 595 km (251 404 mi) away from Earth. It is 813 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 114 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 13 December 2045 at 03:42 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 26 December 2045 at 21:24 in ♌ Leo.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 8 December 2045 at 23:23 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.229°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.241° at the point of next northern standstill on 23 December 2045 at 08:37 in ♊ Gemini.
In 9 days on 24 December 2045 at 00:49 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
