Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 18 March 2064 at 01:45.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2064 after 12 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 794 of Meeus index or 1747 from Brown series.
Length of current 794 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 17 minutes. It is 2 hours and 24 minutes longer than next lunation 795 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠181.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠206.1°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 17 March 2064 at 21:10 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 April 2064 at 05:29 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 402 410 km (250 046 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 235 km (221 976 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 15 March 2064 at 05:39 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 March 2064 at 11:52 in ♌ Leo.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 10 March 2064 at 08:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.823°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.727° in the next northern standstill on 25 March 2064 at 03:21 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 1 April 2064 at 17:40 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
