Crescent ♊ Gemini
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 47% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 23 August 2084 at 03:34 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1794" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2084 after 21 days on 14 September 2084 at 09:15.
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 1046 of Meeus index or 1999 from Brown series.
Length of current 1046 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer than next lunation 1047 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠203.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠232.5°. 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 14 August 2084 at 14:11 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 August 2084 at 17:37 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 399 582 km (248 289 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 242 km (251 806 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 13 August 2084 at 17:30 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 August 2084 at 05:21 in ♋ Cancer.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 11 August 2084 at 16:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.594°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.538° in the next northern standstill on 24 August 2084 at 17:51 in ♊ Gemini.
After 7 days on 31 August 2084 at 07:45 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
