Crescent ♓ Pisces
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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 53 minutes. It is 2 hours and 27 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 2 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 54 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠206.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠235.2°.
8 days after point of perigee on 29 April 2064 at 13:49 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 11 May 2064 at 16:10 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 399 905 km (248 489 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 314 km (251 850 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 10:23 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 22 May 2064 at 17:02 in ♌ Leo.
At 10:23 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
4 days since the previous standstill on 4 May 2064 at 00:57 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.444°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.360° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 May 2064 at 13:54 in ♊ Gemini.
In 7 days on 16 May 2064 at 09:55 in ♉ Taurus 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.
