Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 28 July 2064 at 07:40.
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 ∠9° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2064 after 24 days on 26 August 2064 at 21:35.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 798 of Meeus index or 1751 from Brown series.
Length of current 798 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 3 minutes. It is 41 minutes longer than next lunation 799 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠301.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠325.7°. 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 22:45, this is 15 days after last perigee on 18 July 2064 at 08:38 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 14 August 2064 at 20:26 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 404 778 km (251 517 mi) away from Earth. It is 630 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 931 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after its ascending node on 29 July 2064 at 02:05 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 12 August 2064 at 09:26 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 25 July 2064 at 00:49 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.393°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.403° in the next northern standstill on 8 August 2064 at 13:25 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 12 August 2064 at 17:49 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
