Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1891" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2065 after 14 days on 14 September 2065 at 16:05.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 16:39 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 812 of Meeus index or 1765 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 45 minutes is the length of new lunation 812. It is 21 minutes longer than next lunation 813 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠303.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠327.1°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 23 August 2065 at 10:35 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 September 2065 at 13:22 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 379 107 km (235 566 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 552 km (228 386 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 28 August 2065 at 12:53 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 September 2065 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 25 August 2065 at 15:06 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.110°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.026° in the next southern standstill on 7 September 2065 at 20:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
