Crescent ♉ Taurus
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 42% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* 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 ∠25° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2064 after 20 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.
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°.
1 day after point of apogee on 6 July 2064 at 04:32 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 18 July 2064 at 08:38 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 404 531 km (251 364 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 671 km (228 460 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 1 July 2064 at 18:41 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 16 July 2064 at 00:17 in ♌ Leo.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 27 June 2064 at 18:18 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.335°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.364° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 July 2064 at 04:20 in ♊ Gemini.
In 6 days on 14 July 2064 at 08:46 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
