Crescent ♉ Taurus
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 ♉ Taurus.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 24 July 2084 at 13:22 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1839" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2084 after 22 days on 16 August 2084 at 00:29.
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 1045 of Meeus index or 1998 from Brown series.
Length of current 1045 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 26 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2084. It is 45 minutes longer than next lunation 1046 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠180.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠203.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
7 days after point of perigee on 17 July 2084 at 06:12 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 July 2084 at 05:23 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 389 789 km (242 204 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 129 km (252 357 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 17 July 2084 at 07:42 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 July 2084 at 00:13 in ♋ Cancer.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 15 July 2084 at 08:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.650°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.646° in the next northern standstill on 28 July 2084 at 10:54 in ♊ Gemini.
After 8 days on 1 August 2084 at 17:04 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
