Crescent ♓ Pisces
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 47% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 7 May 2037 at 04:56 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2037 after 21 days on 29 May 2037 at 04:24.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 461 of Meeus index or 1414 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 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 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠225.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠258.7°.
10 days after point of perigee on 27 April 2037 at 09:43 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 9 May 2037 at 06:32 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 403 690 km (250 841 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 662 km (251 445 mi).
1 day after descending node on 5 May 2037 at 23:13 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 20 May 2037 at 03:56 in ♌ Leo.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 4 May 2037 at 06:45 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.163°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.268° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 May 2037 at 17:58 in ♋ Cancer.
In 7 days on 15 May 2037 at 05:54 in ♉ Taurus 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.
