Quarter ♎ Libra
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 45% and growing larger. The 7 days young Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 21 June 2064 at 23:13 UTC.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2064 after 7 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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 797 of Meeus index or 1750 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 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 19 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 50 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠269.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠301.5°.
13 days after point of apogee on 8 June 2064 at 09:54 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 June 2064 at 00:41 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 363 705 km (225 996 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 450 km (229 566 mi).
2 days after descending node on 18 June 2064 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 1 July 2064 at 18:41 in ♒ Aquarius.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 14 June 2064 at 20:16 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.317°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.335° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 June 2064 at 18:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 7 days on 28 June 2064 at 20:08 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
