Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days 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 ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2065 after 15 days on 16 August 2065 at 03:45.
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 27 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 26 July 2065 at 15:50 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 August 2065 at 06:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 395 158 km (245 540 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 504 km (229 599 mi).
13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 August 2065 at 05:11 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 29 July 2065 at 06:45 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.196°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.171° in the next southern standstill on 11 August 2065 at 14:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day 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.
