Crescent ♊ Gemini
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 45% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 29 August 2089 at 01:32 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1924" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2089 after 21 days on 19 September 2089 at 21:55.
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 1108 of Meeus index or 2061 from Brown series.
Length of current 1108 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 1109 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠19.1°. 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 19 August 2089 at 09:33 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 3 September 2089 at 12:32 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 372 555 km (231 495 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 307 km (223 263 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 24 August 2089 at 15:08 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 September 2089 at 11:05 in ♎ Libra.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 16 August 2089 at 02:34 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.382°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.297° in the next northern standstill on 30 August 2089 at 14:24 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 4 September 2089 at 15:58 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
