Quarter ♉ Taurus
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 ♉ Taurus.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 3 August 2075 at 16:43 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1819" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2075 after 22 days on 26 August 2075 at 00:51.
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 934 of Meeus index or 1887 from Brown series.
Length of current 934 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 935 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 15 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 48 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠193.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠218.9°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 26 July 2075 at 17:26 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 August 2075 at 04:19 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 394 136 km (244 905 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 671 km (252 072 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 26 July 2075 at 08:37 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 August 2075 at 23:02 in ♋ Cancer.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 26 July 2075 at 05:07 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.675°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.688° in the next northern standstill on 8 August 2075 at 18:41 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 11 August 2075 at 21:10 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
