Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 31 August 2065 at 16:39.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2065 after 10 days on 14 September 2065 at 16:05.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 812 of Meeus index or 1765 from Brown series.
Length of current 812 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 45 minutes. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 13:22, this is 12 days after last apogee on 23 August 2065 at 10:35 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 20 September 2065 at 05:27 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 367 552 km (228 386 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 044 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 804 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 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 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 September 2065 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 25 August 2065 at 15:06 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.110°. Next 3 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.
After 10 days on 14 September 2065 at 16:05 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
