Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 5 April 2065 at 19:01.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2065 after 13 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 807 of Meeus index or 1760 from Brown series.
Length of current 807 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 29 minutes. It is 55 minutes longer than next lunation 808 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 45 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 18 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠159.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠183°. 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°).
14 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 April 2065 at 00:30 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 405 477 km (251 952 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 389 km (252 518 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 30 March 2065 at 22:27 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 April 2065 at 13:32 in ♋ Cancer.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 27 March 2065 at 18:51 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.548°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.411° in the next northern standstill on 11 April 2065 at 06:32 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 20 April 2065 at 18:36 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
