Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 47% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 3 March 2100 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 ∠16° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1927" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2100 after 22 days on 26 March 2100 at 01:05.
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 1238 of Meeus index or 2191 from Brown series.
Length of current 1238 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 34 minutes. It is 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 1239 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠119.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠151.4°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 26 February 2100 at 05:17 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 March 2100 at 21:09 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 371 908 km (231 093 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 110 km (252 345 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 25 February 2100 at 09:12 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 March 2100 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 19 February 2100 at 17:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.552°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.575° in the next southern standstill on 4 March 2100 at 09:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 10 March 2100 at 22:28 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
