Crescent ♈ Aries
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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 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 3 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 55 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠46°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠74.1°.
14 days after point of apogee on 6 June 2033 at 10:13 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 June 2033 at 01:28 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 363 301 km (225 745 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 518 km (229 608 mi).
12 days after ascending node on 7 June 2033 at 22:45 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 21 June 2033 at 08:42 in ♈ Aries.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 13 June 2033 at 04:17 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.723°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.717° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 June 2033 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini.
In 6 days on 26 June 2033 at 21:07 in ♊ Gemini 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.
