Crescent ♉ Taurus
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 43% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 3 July 2029 at 17:58 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2029 after 21 days on 25 July 2029 at 13:36.
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 364 of Meeus index or 1317 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 56 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 44 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 26 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠244.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠279.1°.
Moon is at apogee at 16:05. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 22 June 2029 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 18 July 2029 at 11:25 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 404 317 km (251 231 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 091 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 392 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
8 days after ascending node on 26 June 2029 at 03:09 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 10 July 2029 at 12:33 in ♋ Cancer.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 24 June 2029 at 23:29 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.401°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.399° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 July 2029 at 05:56 in ♊ Gemini.
In 7 days on 11 July 2029 at 15:51 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
