Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 11 July 2065 at 01:16.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2065 after 3 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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 810 of Meeus index or 1763 from Brown series.
Length of current 810 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 811 length.
Length of current synodic month is 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠235.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠270.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 17:50, this is 15 days after last apogee on 28 June 2065 at 22:35 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 26 July 2065 at 15:50 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 365 373 km (227 032 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 865 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 983 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after its descending node on 4 July 2065 at 21:42 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 July 2065 at 20:19 in ♑ Capricorn.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 1 July 2065 at 23:11 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.180°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.199° in the next southern standstill on 15 July 2065 at 07:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 days on 17 July 2065 at 17:45 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
