Quarter* ♐ Sagittarius
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 56% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 5 March 2032 at 01:47 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1913" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2032 after 22 days on 27 March 2032 at 00:46.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 397 of Meeus index or 1350 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2032. It is 15 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 25 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠6.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠23.4°.
9 days after point of apogee on 23 February 2032 at 18:41 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 March 2032 at 06:54 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 374 651 km (232 797 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 020 km (223 706 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 2 March 2032 at 12:11 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 March 2032 at 02:16 in ♉ Taurus.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
13 days since the previous standstill on 19 February 2032 at 21:21 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.009°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-19.866° at the point of next southern standstill on 5 March 2032 at 11:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 7 days on 11 March 2032 at 16:25 in ♓ Pisces 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.
