Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 46% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♎ Libra.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 11 January 2064 at 03:14 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2064 after 22 days on 2 February 2064 at 21:37.
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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 791 of Meeus index or 1744 from Brown series.
Length of current 791 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 792 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠88.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠125.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
4 days after point of perigee on 7 January 2064 at 03:30 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 January 2064 at 05:31 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 367 132 km (228 125 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 424 km (251 919 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 7 January 2064 at 06:27 in ♌ Leo, 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 20 January 2064 at 17:11 in ♒ Aquarius.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 3 January 2064 at 00:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.781°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.815° in the next southern standstill on 15 January 2064 at 20:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 18 January 2064 at 12:37 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
