Crescent ♓ Pisces
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 ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 7 May 2075 at 09:59 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1938" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2075 after 22 days on 30 May 2075 at 02:38.
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 931 of Meeus index or 1884 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes. It is 50 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 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠113.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠145.4°.
4 days after point of perigee on 2 May 2075 at 16:21 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 18 May 2075 at 08:43 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 369 782 km (229 772 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 811 km (252 159 mi).
2 days after descending node on 5 May 2075 at 05:59 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 19 May 2075 at 06:26 in ♋ Cancer.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 4 May 2075 at 22:18 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.503°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.600° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 May 2075 at 23:38 in ♋ Cancer.
In 7 days on 14 May 2075 at 23:22 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.
