Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 2 February 2064 at 21:37.
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 ∠8° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2064 after 27 days on 3 March 2064 at 08:19.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 792 of Meeus index or 1745 from Brown series.
Length of current 792 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 26 minutes. It is 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 793 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠125.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 06:21, this is 12 days after last apogee on 23 January 2064 at 05:31 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 February 2064 at 18:41 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 359 865 km (223 610 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 643 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 491 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 3 February 2064 at 15:20 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 February 2064 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 30 January 2064 at 10:58 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.857°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.877° in the next southern standstill on 12 February 2064 at 02:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 17 February 2064 at 07:03 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
