Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 14 June 2064 at 22:20.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1886" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2064 after 12 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 797 of Meeus index or 1750 from Brown series.
Length of current 797 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes longer than next lunation 798 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 50 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠269.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠301.5°. 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 apogee on 8 June 2064 at 09:54 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 June 2064 at 00:41 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 380 017 km (236 132 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 450 km (229 566 mi).
11 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 2 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 previous North standstill on 14 June 2064 at 20:16 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.317°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.335° in the next southern standstill on 27 June 2064 at 18:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 28 June 2064 at 20:08 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
