Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 44% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 19 June 2033 at 23:29 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2033 after 21 days on 12 July 2033 at 09:29.
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 413 of Meeus index or 1366 from Brown series.
Length of current 413 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 414 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.1°. 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°).
14 days after point of apogee on 6 June 2033 at 10:13 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 June 2033 at 01:28 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 363 301 km (225 745 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 518 km (229 608 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 7 June 2033 at 22:45 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 June 2033 at 08:42 in ♈ Aries.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 13 June 2033 at 04:17 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.723°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.717° in the next northern standstill on 26 June 2033 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 26 June 2033 at 21:07 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
