Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 5 May 2065 at 11:30.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1789" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2065 after 11 days on 20 May 2065 at 02:05.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 808 of Meeus index or 1761 from Brown series.
Length of current 808 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 809 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠183°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠206.9°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 5 May 2065 at 03:19 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 19 May 2065 at 12:57 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 400 590 km (248 915 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 407 km (222 082 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 26 April 2065 at 23:17 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 May 2065 at 14:42 in ♋ Cancer.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 11:49 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠26.222°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-26.190° in its southern standstill point on 21 May 2065 at 12:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 11 days on 20 May 2065 at 02:05 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
