Crescent ♉ Taurus
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 48% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 4 August 2037 at 07:51 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1806" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2037 after 21 days on 25 August 2037 at 19:09.
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 464 of Meeus index or 1417 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 10 minutes. It is 26 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 4 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 35 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠318.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠338.4°.
3 days after point of apogee on 31 July 2037 at 12:33 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 August 2037 at 17:37 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 396 808 km (246 565 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 796 km (223 567 mi).
8 days after descending node on 26 July 2037 at 17:23 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 10 August 2037 at 01:40 in ♋ Cancer.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 25 July 2037 at 08:44 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.355°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.369° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 August 2037 at 21:01 in ♋ Cancer.
In 6 days on 11 August 2037 at 10:41 in ♌ Leo 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.
