Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 12 August 2064 at 17:49.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2064 after 12 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 799 of Meeus index or 1752 from Brown series.
Length of current 799 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2064. It is 1 minute shorter than next lunation 800 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠325.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠344°. 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 perigee on this date at 20:26, this is 11 days after last apogee on 2 August 2064 at 22:45 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 30 August 2064 at 14:46 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 362 724 km (225 386 mi) away from Earth. It is 216 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 7 632 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after its descending node on 12 August 2064 at 09:26 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 August 2064 at 09:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2064 at 13:25 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.403°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.397° in the next southern standstill on 21 August 2064 at 06:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 26 August 2064 at 21:35 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
