Crescent ♋ Cancer
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 ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 13 September 2036 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 ∠22° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1930" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2036 after 21 days on 5 October 2036 at 10:15.
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 453 of Meeus index or 1406 from Brown series.
Length of current 453 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 454 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.8°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 3 September 2036 at 00:30 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 September 2036 at 12:38 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 371 316 km (230 725 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 820 km (224 203 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 3 September 2036 at 12:59 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 September 2036 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 31 August 2036 at 09:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.884°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.957° in the next northern standstill on 14 September 2036 at 18:44 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 20 September 2036 at 01:51 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
