Crescent ♈ Aries
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 49% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 22 June 2049 at 09:41 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1912" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2049 after 22 days on 15 July 2049 at 02:29.
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 611 of Meeus index or 1564 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 50 minutes. It is 27 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 57 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠136.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠162.9°.
5 days after point of perigee on 16 June 2049 at 22:40 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 2 July 2049 at 01:01 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 374 852 km (232 922 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 409 km (252 531 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 14 June 2049 at 17:59 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 27 June 2049 at 17:38 in ♊ Gemini.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 15 June 2049 at 07:58 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.089°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.088° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 June 2049 at 11:03 in ♊ Gemini.
In 7 days on 30 June 2049 at 04:50 in ♋ Cancer 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.
