Crescent ♓ Pisces
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 48% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 3 June 2097 at 06:11 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1851" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2097 after 21 days on 24 June 2097 at 19:03.
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 1204 of Meeus index or 2157 from Brown series.
Length of current 1204 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 34 minutes. It is 50 minutes longer than next lunation 1205 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.1°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 28 May 2097 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 June 2097 at 09:12 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 387 343 km (240 684 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 390 km (222 072 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 24 May 2097 at 05:04 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 June 2097 at 13:23 in ♉ Taurus.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 28 May 2097 at 19:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.488°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.467° in the next northern standstill on 11 June 2097 at 04:55 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 10 June 2097 at 02:13 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
