Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 9 February 2064 at 12:55.
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 ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1857" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2064 after 19 days on 3 March 2064 at 08:19.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 4 February 2064 at 06:21 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 February 2064 at 18:41 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 386 030 km (239 868 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 266 km (252 442 mi).
8 days 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 February 2064 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 02:10 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-27.877°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2064. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠27.859° in its northern standstill point on 26 February 2064 at 20:13 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 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.
