Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 55% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 6 June 2064 at 23:23 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2064 after 22 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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
9 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 June 2064 at 09:54 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 403 515 km (250 733 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 403 km (251 284 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 4 June 2064 at 13:10 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 June 2064 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 31 May 2064 at 10:13 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.330°. Next 8 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 8 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.
