Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1830" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2065 after 18 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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
5 days 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 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 October 2065 at 02:38 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 391 658 km (243 365 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 386 km (225 176 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 24 September 2065 at 18:20 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 October 2065 at 10:31 in ♑ Capricorn.

3 days after previous North standstill on 21 September 2065 at 23:05 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.907°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.796° in the next southern standstill on 5 October 2065 at 01:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 4 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.
