Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 2 August 2065 at 05:46.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1959" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2065 after 8 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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 811 of Meeus index or 1764 from Brown series.
Length of current 811 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 53 minutes. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 812 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠270.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠303.1°. 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°).
11 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 August 2065 at 06:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 365 862 km (227 336 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 504 km (229 599 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 1 August 2065 at 05:11 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 August 2065 at 04:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

9 days after previous North standstill on 29 July 2065 at 06:45 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.196°. Next 4 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 8 days on 16 August 2065 at 03:45 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
