* 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.

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.
Length of current 931 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes. It is 50 minutes shorter than next lunation 932 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠113.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠145.4°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 2 May 2075 at 16:21 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 May 2075 at 08:43 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 369 782 km (229 772 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 811 km (252 159 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 5 May 2075 at 05:59 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 May 2075 at 06:26 in ♋ Cancer.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 4 May 2075 at 22:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.503°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.600° in the next northern standstill on 18 May 2075 at 23:38 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 14 May 2075 at 23:22 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
