Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 52% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 27 February 2065 at 15:29 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2065 after 22 days on 22 March 2065 at 09:56.
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 805 of Meeus index or 1758 from Brown series.
Length of current 805 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 13 minutes. It is 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 806 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠92.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠129.8°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 23 February 2065 at 13:24 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 March 2065 at 13:11 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 366 220 km (227 559 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 573 km (252 011 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 19 February 2065 at 01:44 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 March 2065 at 20:26 in ♑ Capricorn.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 15 February 2065 at 15:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.810°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.754° in the next southern standstill on 28 February 2065 at 12:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 7 March 2065 at 02:15 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
