Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 49% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 5 August 2064 at 09:41 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2064 after 21 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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 2 August 2064 at 22:45 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 August 2064 at 20:26 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 401 683 km (249 594 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 724 km (225 386 mi).
7 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 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 August 2064 at 09:26 in ♌ Leo.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 25 July 2064 at 00:49 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.393°. Next 3 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 7 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.
