Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 18 June 2065 at 09:28.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1905" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2065 after 27 days on 17 July 2065 at 17:45.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 16 June 2065 at 20:01 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 June 2065 at 22:35 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 376 238 km (233 783 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 316 km (251 852 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 10:37 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 4 July 2065 at 21:42 in ♋ Cancer.
At 10:37 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
2 days after previous South standstill on 17 June 2065 at 22:40 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.172°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.180° in the next northern standstill on 1 July 2065 at 23:11 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 3 July 2065 at 17:16 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
