Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 6 June 2064 at 23:23.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2064 after 20 days on 28 June 2064 at 20:08.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 09:54, this is 11 days after last perigee on 27 May 2064 at 12:05 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 June 2064 at 00:41 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 404 403 km (251 284 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 005 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 306 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
3 days 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 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 June 2064 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 31 May 2064 at 10:13 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.330°. Next 6 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 6 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.
