Crescent ♓ Pisces
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 47% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 6 May 2067 at 05:19 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2067 after 22 days on 28 May 2067 at 18:42.
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 832 of Meeus index or 1785 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 57 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 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 47 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 22 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠63.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠98.3°.
2 days after point of perigee on 4 May 2067 at 04:17 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 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 May 2067 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 364 022 km (226 193 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 564 km (251 384 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 2 May 2067 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 May 2067 at 12:44 in ♊ Gemini.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 2 May 2067 at 04:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.143°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.108° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 May 2067 at 07:53 in ♊ Gemini.
In 6 days on 13 May 2067 at 07:20 in ♉ Taurus 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.
