Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 28 June 2064 at 20:08.
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 ∠13° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1812" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2064 after 26 days on 28 July 2064 at 07:40.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 perigee on 23 June 2064 at 00:41 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 July 2064 at 04:32 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 395 504 km (245 755 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 174 km (251 142 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 18:41 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 16 July 2064 at 00:17 in ♌ Leo.
At 18:41 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
3 days after previous South standstill on 27 June 2064 at 18:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.335°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.364° in the next northern standstill on 12 July 2064 at 04:20 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 14 July 2064 at 08:46 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
