* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 7 May 2094 at 14:47 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2094 after 22 days on 30 May 2094 at 00:58.
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 1166 of Meeus index or 2119 from Brown series.
Length of current 1166 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1167 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.7°. 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°).
13 days after point of apogee on 23 April 2094 at 23:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 May 2094 at 13:33 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 363 423 km (225 821 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 651 km (229 690 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 4 May 2094 at 20:35 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 May 2094 at 21:46 in ♋ Cancer.
16 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 5 May 2094 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.185°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.256° in the next northern standstill on 18 May 2094 at 05:10 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 14 May 2094 at 12:09 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
