Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 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 about ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1912".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2065 after 22 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 21 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 20 September 2065 at 05:27 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 October 2065 at 02:38 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 404 398 km (251 281 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 386 km (225 176 mi).
11 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 September 2065 at 18:20 in ♋ Cancer.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 23:05 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠25.907°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-25.796° in its southern standstill point on 5 October 2065 at 01:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 8 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.
