Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 25 October 2064 at 07:06.
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 ∠17° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2064 after 28 days on 24 November 2064 at 00:58.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 801 of Meeus index or 1754 from Brown series.
Length of current 801 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 11 minutes. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 24 October 2064 at 01:15 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 November 2064 at 22:41 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 403 125 km (250 490 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 227 km (222 592 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 18 October 2064 at 15:14 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 2 November 2064 at 05:22 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 14 October 2064 at 19:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.067°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.938° in the next northern standstill on 29 October 2064 at 10:35 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 8 November 2064 at 19:45 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
