Crescent ♈ Aries
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 45% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 5 June 2037 at 22:49 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2037 after 21 days on 27 June 2037 at 15:20.
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 462 of Meeus index or 1415 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 54 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 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠258.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠292.3°.
Moon is at apogee at 01:22. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 24 May 2037 at 14:45 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 18 June 2037 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 404 141 km (251 122 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2037. It is 1 267 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 90 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after descending node on 2 June 2037 at 03:23 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 16 June 2037 at 07:41 in ♋ Cancer.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 31 May 2037 at 16:34 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.325°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.359° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 June 2037 at 01:37 in ♋ Cancer.
In 7 days on 13 June 2037 at 17:10 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.
