Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 48% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 8 May 2064 at 06:16 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1792" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2064 after 21 days on 30 May 2064 at 10:36.
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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 795 of Meeus index or 1748 from Brown series.
Length of current 795 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 53 minutes. It is 2 hours and 27 minutes longer than next lunation 796 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠206.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠235.2°. 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 29 April 2064 at 13:49 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 May 2064 at 16:10 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 399 905 km (248 489 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 314 km (251 850 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 10:23 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 22 May 2064 at 17:02 in ♌ Leo.
At 10:23 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
4 days after previous South standstill on 4 May 2064 at 00:57 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.444°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.360° in the next northern standstill on 18 May 2064 at 13:54 in ♊ Gemini.
After 7 days on 16 May 2064 at 09:55 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
