Crescent ♒ Aquarius
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 ♑ Capricorn.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 7 April 2086 at 02:22 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1921" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2086 after 21 days on 28 April 2086 at 22:35.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1066 of Meeus index or 2019 from Brown series.
Length of current 1066 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 minute longer than next lunation 1067 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠2.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠18.1°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 28 March 2086 at 11:54 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 April 2086 at 15:10 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 373 066 km (231 812 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 914 km (223 019 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 4 April 2086 at 14:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 April 2086 at 03:54 in ♊ Gemini.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 4 April 2086 at 20:32 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.622°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.550° in the next northern standstill on 17 April 2086 at 10:50 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 13 April 2086 at 16:53 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
