Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2064 after 14 days on 25 October 2064 at 07:06.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 10:34 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 801 of Meeus index or 1754 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 11 minutes is the length of new lunation 801. It is 1 hour and 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 802 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠359.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠14.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 11:14, this is 13 days after last apogee on 27 September 2064 at 00:14 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 24 October 2064 at 01:15 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 356 866 km (221 746 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2064. It is 5 642 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 441 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 6 October 2064 at 02:42 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 October 2064 at 15:14 in ♒ Aquarius.

8 days after previous North standstill on 2 October 2064 at 05:10 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.159°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.067° in the next southern standstill on 14 October 2064 at 19:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
