Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 14 September 2065 at 16:05.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1911".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2065 after 23 days on 14 October 2065 at 07:04.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 apogee on this date at 05:27, this is 15 days after last perigee on 4 September 2065 at 13:22 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 2 October 2065 at 02:38 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 404 888 km (251 586 mi) away from Earth. It is 520 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 821 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after its ascending node on 10 September 2065 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 September 2065 at 18:20 in ♋ Cancer.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 7 September 2065 at 20:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.026°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.907° in the next northern standstill on 21 September 2065 at 23:05 in ♊ Gemini.
After 9 days on 30 September 2065 at 02:24 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
