Lunar disc appears visually 8.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2065 after 9 days on 22 March 2065 at 09:56.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
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 806 of Meeus index or 1759 from Brown series.
Length of current 806 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 46 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2065. It is 17 minutes longer than next lunation 807 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠129.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠159.2°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 11 March 2065 at 13:11 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 March 2065 at 16:36 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 404 704 km (251 471 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 485 km (223 374 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 3 March 2065 at 20:26 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 18 March 2065 at 09:40 in ♌ Leo.

11 days after previous South standstill on 28 February 2065 at 12:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.754°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.648° in the next northern standstill on 14 March 2065 at 23:55 in ♊ Gemini.
After 9 days on 22 March 2065 at 09:56 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
