Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 3 March 2064 at 08:19.
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 first ∠0° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1916" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2064 after 24 days on 1 April 2064 at 17:40.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 793 of Meeus index or 1746 from Brown series.
Length of current 793 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2064. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes longer than next lunation 794 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠181.6°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 3 March 2064 at 17:31 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 March 2064 at 21:10 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 374 118 km (232 466 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 581 km (252 638 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 2 March 2064 at 02:40 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 March 2064 at 05:39 in ♒ Aquarius.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 26 February 2064 at 20:13 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.859°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.823° in the next southern standstill on 10 March 2064 at 08:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 9 days on 18 March 2064 at 01:45 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
