Crescent ♈ Aries
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 51% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 13 June 2077 at 14:08 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2077 after 22 days on 6 July 2077 at 01:22.
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 957 of Meeus index or 1910 from Brown series.
Length of current 957 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 17 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 958 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠50.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠80.3°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 20:17, this is 14 days after last apogee on 30 May 2077 at 18:38 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2077 at 13:19 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 369 667 km (229 700 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2077. It is 7 159 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 689 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its descending node on 5 June 2077 at 23:08 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 June 2077 at 21:39 in ♊ Gemini.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2077 at 08:58 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.830°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.810° in the next northern standstill on 21 June 2077 at 07:13 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 20 June 2077 at 12:55 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
