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 29 March 2084 at 03:58 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2084 after 22 days on 20 April 2084 at 17:52.
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 1041 of Meeus index or 1994 from Brown series.
Length of current 1041 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 48 minutes. It is 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 1042 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠58.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠92.7°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 27 March 2084 at 14:45 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 11 April 2084 at 15:02 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 363 747 km (226 022 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 434 km (251 304 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 17 March 2084 at 04:22 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 March 2084 at 08:50 in ♑ Capricorn.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 27 March 2084 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.978°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.857° in the next northern standstill on 10 April 2084 at 10:37 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 5 April 2084 at 05:52 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
