Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 43% and getting smaller. The 22 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2075 after 21 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 22 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 13:32, this is 14 days after last apogee on 24 February 2075 at 02:31 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 23 March 2075 at 23:11 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 370 071 km (229 951 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2075. It is 7 563 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 285 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 March 2075 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 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 6 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.
