Quarter* ♊ Gemini
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 56% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 7 September 2080 at 01:37 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1924" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2080 after 22 days on 29 September 2080 at 01:54.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 997 of Meeus index or 1950 from Brown series.
Length of current 997 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 11 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 998 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠12°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠29.1°. 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 27 August 2080 at 06:54 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 11 September 2080 at 22:03 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 372 495 km (231 458 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 563 km (224 665 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 1 September 2080 at 13:10 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 September 2080 at 11:50 in ♎ Libra.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 24 August 2080 at 19:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.609°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.667° in the next northern standstill on 8 September 2080 at 04:04 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 13 September 2080 at 16:25 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
