Quarter ♎ Libra
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 45% and growing larger. The 7 days young Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 21 June 2064 at 23:13 UTC.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2064 after 7 days on 28 June 2064 at 20:08.
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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 797 of Meeus index or 1750 from Brown series.
Length of current 797 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes longer than next lunation 798 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 50 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠269.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠301.5°. 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°).
13 days after point of apogee on 8 June 2064 at 09:54 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 June 2064 at 00:41 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 363 705 km (225 996 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 450 km (229 566 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 18 June 2064 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 July 2064 at 18:41 in ♒ Aquarius.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 14 June 2064 at 20:16 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.317°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.335° in the next southern standstill on 27 June 2064 at 18:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 28 June 2064 at 20:08 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
