First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 47% and growing larger. The 7 days young Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 11 June 2065 at 19:25 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1923" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2065 after 6 days on 18 June 2065 at 09:28.
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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 809 of Meeus index or 1762 from Brown series.
Length of current 809 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than next lunation 810 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠206.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠235.9°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 1 June 2065 at 09:08 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 June 2065 at 20:01 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 372 670 km (231 566 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 552 km (224 037 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 7 June 2065 at 16:41 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 June 2065 at 10:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 4 June 2065 at 16:59 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.155°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.172° in the next southern standstill on 17 June 2065 at 22:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 18 June 2065 at 09:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
