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 27 April 2084 at 10:29 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2084 after 22 days on 20 May 2084 at 02:36.
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 1042 of Meeus index or 1995 from Brown series.
Length of current 1042 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 40 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1043 length.
Length of current synodic month is 56 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 7 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠92.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠128.4°. 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 23 April 2084 at 11:07 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 May 2084 at 08:15 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 366 574 km (227 779 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 281 km (251 830 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 26 April 2084 at 09:18 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 May 2084 at 08:57 in ♋ Cancer.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 24 April 2084 at 03:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.760°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.673° in the next northern standstill on 7 May 2084 at 17:28 in ♊ Gemini.
After 7 days on 4 May 2084 at 19:32 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
