Crescent ♈ Aries
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 45% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 5 June 2037 at 22:49 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2037 after 21 days on 27 June 2037 at 15:20.
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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 462 of Meeus index or 1415 from Brown series.
Length of current 462 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than next lunation 463 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠258.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠292.3°. 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 apogee on this date at 01:22, this is 12 days after last perigee on 24 May 2037 at 14:45 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2037 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 404 141 km (251 122 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2037. It is 1 267 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 90 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 2 June 2037 at 03:23 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 June 2037 at 07:41 in ♋ Cancer.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 31 May 2037 at 16:34 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.325°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.359° in the next northern standstill on 15 June 2037 at 01:37 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 13 June 2037 at 17:10 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
