Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1950" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2065 after 24 days on 20 April 2065 at 18:36.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 23 March 2065 at 16:36 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 April 2065 at 00:30 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 367 536 km (228 376 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 389 km (252 518 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 18 March 2065 at 09:40 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 March 2065 at 22:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 18:51 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.548°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.411° in its northern standstill point on 11 April 2065 at 06:32 in ♊ Gemini.
After 9 days on 5 April 2065 at 19:01 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
