Quarter ♓ Pisces
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 53% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 7 June 2045 at 20:23 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1782" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2045 after 21 days on 29 June 2045 at 07:16.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 561 of Meeus index or 1514 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 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 6 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠305.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠328°.
2 days after point of apogee on 5 June 2045 at 03:25 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 June 2045 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 402 186 km (249 907 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 268 km (225 103 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 5 June 2045 at 23:31 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2045 at 04:27 in ♌ Leo.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 31 May 2045 at 22:23 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.697°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.696° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 June 2045 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini.
In 7 days on 15 June 2045 at 03:05 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.
