Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 46% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
* 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 ∠24° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2075 after 22 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 22 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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 31 minutes. It is 56 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 46 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 16 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠76.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠113.2°.
3 days after point of perigee on 4 April 2075 at 22:38 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 20 April 2075 at 18:02 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 365 398 km (227 048 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 871 km (251 575 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 04:27 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 22 April 2075 at 03:55 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 7 April 2075 at 15:33 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.269°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.404° at the point of next northern standstill on 21 April 2075 at 16:04 in ♋ Cancer.
In 6 days on 15 April 2075 at 08:55 in ♈ Aries 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.
