Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 25 July 2065 at 06:22.
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 ∠18° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2065 after 20 days on 16 August 2065 at 03:45.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 apogee on this date at 15:50, this is 11 days after last perigee on 14 July 2065 at 17:50 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 10 August 2065 at 06:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 404 434 km (251 304 mi) away from Earth. It is 974 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 275 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
8 days after its ascending node on 17 July 2065 at 20:19 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 August 2065 at 05:11 in ♋ Cancer.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 15 July 2065 at 07:31 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.199°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.196° in the next northern standstill on 29 July 2065 at 06:45 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 2 August 2065 at 05:46 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
