Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 44% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♎ Libra.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 30 December 2064 at 23:50 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2065 after 21 days on 22 January 2065 at 09:53.
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 803 of Meeus index or 1756 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes. It is 2 hours and 1 minute shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 7 hours and 1 minute shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠33°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠57.9°.
13 days after point of apogee on 18 December 2064 at 01:06 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 January 2065 at 20:34 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 363 623 km (225 945 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 142 km (228 753 mi).
5 days after descending node on 26 December 2064 at 08:47 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 January 2065 at 05:38 in ♒ Aquarius.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 22 December 2064 at 22:07 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.786°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.815° at the point of next southern standstill on 5 January 2065 at 00:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 6 days on 6 January 2065 at 19:15 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
