Crescent ♋ Cancer
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 51% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 24 September 2035 at 14:39 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2035 after 22 days on 17 October 2035 at 02:35.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 441 of Meeus index or 1394 from Brown series.
Length of current 441 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 7 minutes. It is 2 hours and 45 minutes shorter than next lunation 442 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠75°. 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 10 September 2035 at 23:26 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 25 September 2035 at 13:37 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 363 445 km (225 834 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 772 km (229 766 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 16 September 2035 at 02:58 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 September 2035 at 03:21 in ♍ Virgo.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 23:19 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.804°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.877° in its southern standstill point on 8 October 2035 at 14:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 1 October 2035 at 13:07 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
