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 2 March 2035 at 03:01 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2035 after 22 days on 23 March 2035 at 22:42.
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 434 of Meeus index or 1387 from Brown series.
Length of current 434 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 435 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠255.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠291.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
11 days after point of perigee on 18 February 2035 at 05:31 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 March 2035 at 09:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 405 102 km (251 719 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 374 km (251 266 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 23 February 2035 at 04:20 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 March 2035 at 15:01 in ♓ Pisces.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 18 February 2035 at 04:16 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.402°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.382° in the next southern standstill on 4 March 2035 at 01:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 days on 9 March 2035 at 23:09 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
