Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2065 after 22 days on 14 September 2065 at 16:05.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 811 / 1764

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 811 of Meeus index or 1764 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 811 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 53 minutes. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 812 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠270.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠270.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠303.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 10:35, this is 13 days after last perigee on 10 August 2065 at 06:04 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 4 September 2065 at 13:22 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 14 August 2065 at 04:46 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 August 2065 at 12:53 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 11 August 2065 at 14:30 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.171°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.110° in the next northern standstill on 25 August 2065 at 15:06 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 31 August 2065 at 16:39 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
