Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 30 May 2064 at 10:36.
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 about ∠22° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1841" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2064 after 26 days on 28 June 2064 at 20:08.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 796 of Meeus index or 1749 from Brown series.
Length of current 796 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 26 minutes. It is 2 hours and 1 minute longer than next lunation 797 length.
Length of current synodic month is 18 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 51 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠235.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠269.7°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 27 May 2064 at 12:05 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 June 2064 at 09:54 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 389 255 km (241 872 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 403 km (251 284 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 22 May 2064 at 17:02 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 June 2064 at 13:10 in ♒ Aquarius.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 31 May 2064 at 10:13 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.330°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.317° in the next northern standstill on 14 June 2064 at 20:16 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 14 June 2064 at 22:20 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
