Crescent ♋ Cancer
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 44% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 21 September 2084 at 20:59 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2084 after 21 days on 13 October 2084 at 20:12.
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 1047 of Meeus index or 2000 from Brown series.
Length of current 1047 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 1048 length.
Length of current synodic month is 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠232.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠268.2°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 11 September 2084 at 14:43 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 September 2084 at 10:54 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 404 893 km (251 589 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 391 km (251 277 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 9 September 2084 at 23:14 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 September 2084 at 08:24 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 21 September 2084 at 01:38 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.317°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.185° in the next southern standstill on 5 October 2084 at 04:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 29 September 2084 at 21:16 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
