* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 6 July 2064 at 16:48 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2064 after 21 days on 28 July 2064 at 07:40.
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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 04:32, this is 13 days after last perigee on 23 June 2064 at 00:41 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 18 July 2064 at 08:38 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 404 174 km (251 142 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2064. It is 1 234 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 123 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after its ascending node on 1 July 2064 at 18:41 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 July 2064 at 00:17 in ♌ Leo.
4 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 27 June 2064 at 18:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.335°. Next 5 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 7 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.
