Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 8 December 2064 at 06:28.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1837" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2064 after 11 days on 23 December 2064 at 18:14.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 803 of Meeus index or 1756 from Brown series.
Length of current 803 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes. It is 2 hours and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 804 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠33°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠57.9°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 6 December 2064 at 06:12 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 December 2064 at 01:06 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 390 170 km (242 440 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 936 km (251 616 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 11 December 2064 at 21:17 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 December 2064 at 08:47 in ♌ Leo.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 8 December 2064 at 15:21 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.787°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.786° in the next northern standstill on 22 December 2064 at 22:07 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 23 December 2064 at 18:14 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
