Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 25 June 2065 at 14:08.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2065 after 16 days on 17 July 2065 at 17:45.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 28 June 2065 at 22:35 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 July 2065 at 17:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 402 983 km (250 402 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 373 km (227 032 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 20 June 2065 at 10:37 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 4 July 2065 at 21:42 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 23:11 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠26.180°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-26.199° in its southern standstill point on 15 July 2065 at 07:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 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.
