Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 15 March 2065 at 06:25.
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 is passing first ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1918" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2065 after 1 day on 22 March 2065 at 09:56.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 806 of Meeus index or 1759 from Brown series.
The length of the 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 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 4 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 1 minute shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠129.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠159.2°.
8 days after point of apogee on 11 March 2065 at 13:11 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 March 2065 at 16:36 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 373 731 km (232 226 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 485 km (223 374 mi).
2 days after descending node on 18 March 2065 at 09:40 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 30 March 2065 at 22:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 14 March 2065 at 23:55 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.648°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.548° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 March 2065 at 18:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 1 day on 22 March 2065 at 09:56 in ♎ Libra 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.
