Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 7 September 2065 at 10:49.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1939"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1939" and ∠1906".

Harvest Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2065 after 5 days on 14 September 2065 at 16:05.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 812 / 1765

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 812 of Meeus index or 1765 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 812 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 45 minutes. It is 21 minutes longer than next lunation 813 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠303.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠303.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠327.1°. 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 after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 4 September 2065 at 13:22 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 September 2065 at 05:27 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 369 704 km

Moon is 369 704 km (229 723 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 888 km (251 586 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 28 August 2065 at 12:53 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 September 2065 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 7 September 2065 at 20:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.026°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.907° in the next northern standstill on 21 September 2065 at 23:05 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 14 September 2065 at 16:05 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
