Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 52% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 8 March 2067 at 16:16 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1947" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 22 days on 30 March 2067 at 20:08.
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 830 of Meeus index or 1783 from Brown series.
Length of current 830 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2067. It is 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 831 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
11 days after point of apogee on 25 February 2067 at 01:39 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 March 2067 at 00:40 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 368 092 km (228 722 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 617 km (225 941 mi).
13 days after its descending node on 23 February 2067 at 01:40 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 March 2067 at 05:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 17:24 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.547°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.428° in its northern standstill point on 21 March 2067 at 15:43 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 15 March 2067 at 08:29 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
