Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 9 August 2065 at 05:52.
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 ∠5° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2065 after 5 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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 06:04, this is 14 days after last apogee on 26 July 2065 at 15:50 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 23 August 2065 at 10:35 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 369 504 km (229 599 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 996 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 852 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 August 2065 at 04:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
23 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 29 July 2065 at 06:45 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.196°. Next day 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 5 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.
