Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 45% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 10 March 2064 at 00:33 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1869" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2064 after 22 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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 793 of Meeus index or 1746 from Brown series.
The length of the 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 the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠181.6°.
6 days after point of perigee on 3 March 2064 at 17:31 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 17 March 2064 at 21:10 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 383 511 km (238 303 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 581 km (252 638 mi).
8 days after descending node on 2 March 2064 at 02:40 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 15 March 2064 at 05:39 in ♒ Aquarius.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 08:07 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-27.823°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠27.727° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 25 March 2064 at 03:21.
In 7 days on 18 March 2064 at 01:45 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
