Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 48% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 21 February 2090 at 07:42 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1863" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2090 after 22 days on 15 March 2090 at 23:42.
The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1114 of Meeus index or 2067 from Brown series.
Length of current 1114 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 12 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2090. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 1115 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 28 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 35 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠163.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠188.4°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 14 February 2090 at 17:13 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 February 2090 at 10:33 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 384 678 km (239 028 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 559 km (252 624 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 16 February 2090 at 19:19 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 March 2090 at 23:32 in ♓ Pisces.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 10 February 2090 at 19:04 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.250°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.192° in the next southern standstill on 23 February 2090 at 11:00 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 1 March 2090 at 09:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
