* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 8 April 2075 at 03:03 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2075 after 23 days on 30 April 2075 at 18:37.
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 930 of Meeus index or 1883 from Brown series.
Length of current 930 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 31 minutes. It is 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 931 length.
Length of current synodic month is 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠113.2°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 4 April 2075 at 22:38 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 April 2075 at 18:02 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 363 783 km (226 044 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 871 km (251 575 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 26 March 2075 at 01:58 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 April 2075 at 04:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 15:33 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.269°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.404° in its northern standstill point on 21 April 2075 at 16:04 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 15 April 2075 at 08:55 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
