* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 30 March 2092 at 08:21 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2092 after 22 days on 22 April 2092 at 02:29.
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 1140 of Meeus index or 2093 from Brown series.
Length of current 1140 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 45 minutes. It is 13 minutes shorter than next lunation 1141 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠106.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠140.8°. 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 25 March 2092 at 19:17 in ♎ Libra. 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 10 April 2092 at 15:02 in ♉ Taurus.

9 days after its ascending node on 20 March 2092 at 18:51 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 April 2092 at 11:01 in ♒ Aquarius.

At 05:01 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-19.597°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠19.718° in its northern standstill point on 13 April 2092 at 15:44 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 6 April 2092 at 21:41 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
