* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 29 March 2095 at 00:54 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1875" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2095 after 22 days on 19 April 2095 at 18:14.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1177 of Meeus index or 2130 from Brown series.
Length of current 1177 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 57 minutes. It is 27 minutes longer than next lunation 1178 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.2°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 20 March 2095 at 17:48 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 April 2095 at 03:40 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 382 254 km (237 522 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 412 km (222 086 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 27 March 2095 at 18:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 April 2095 at 05:17 in ♊ Gemini.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
14 days after previous North standstill on 14 March 2095 at 10:35 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.438°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.592° in the next southern standstill on 29 March 2095 at 04:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 4 April 2095 at 16:36 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
