Crescent ♑ Capricorn
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 ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 11 March 2083 at 00:10 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2083 after 22 days on 2 April 2083 at 18:07.
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 1028 of Meeus index or 1981 from Brown series.
Length of current 1028 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 41 minutes. It is 32 minutes shorter than next lunation 1029 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠89.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠126.4°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 7 March 2083 at 02:14 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 March 2083 at 01:37 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 367 454 km (228 325 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 448 km (251 934 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 2 March 2083 at 10:14 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 March 2083 at 05:07 in ♒ Aquarius.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 05:07 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-27.406°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠27.306° in its northern standstill point on 25 March 2083 at 12:42 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 18 March 2083 at 09:56 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
