Quarter ♐ Sagittarius
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 54% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 9 March 2075 at 20:17 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2075 after 22 days on 1 April 2075 at 08:45.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 929 of Meeus index or 1882 from Brown series.
Length of current 929 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 930 length.
Length of current synodic month is equal to the mean length of synodic month. It is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the 21st century shortest and 7 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the 21st century longest synodic month.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.5°. 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°).
13 days after point of apogee on 24 February 2075 at 02:31 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 March 2075 at 13:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 363 512 km (225 876 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 071 km (229 951 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 26 February 2075 at 22:09 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 March 2075 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 26 February 2075 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.916°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.019° in the next southern standstill on 11 March 2075 at 10:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 16 March 2075 at 19:25 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
