Crescent ♑ Capricorn
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 ♑ Capricorn.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 1 April 2100 at 16:35 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1895" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2100 after 22 days on 24 April 2100 at 09:43.
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 1239 of Meeus index or 2192 from Brown series.
Length of current 1239 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 48 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2100. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 1240 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠151.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠176.6°. 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 March 2100 at 14:59 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 April 2100 at 01:45 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 378 324 km (235 080 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 566 km (252 628 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 24 March 2100 at 20:18 in ♍ Virgo, 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 6 April 2100 at 22:10 in ♓ Pisces.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 31 March 2100 at 15:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.525°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.446° in the next northern standstill on 15 April 2100 at 08:21 in ♊ Gemini.
After 8 days on 9 April 2100 at 16:16 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
