Crescent ♉ Taurus
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 43% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 19 July 2090 at 20:16 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1802" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2090 after 20 days on 10 August 2090 at 06:51.
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 1119 of Meeus index or 2072 from Brown series.
Length of current 1119 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 8 minutes. It is 28 minutes longer than next lunation 1120 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 36 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 33 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠310°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.5°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 16 July 2090 at 18:12 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 July 2090 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 397 857 km (247 217 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 406 km (224 567 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 16 July 2090 at 21:11 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 July 2090 at 05:38 in ♍ Virgo.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 10 July 2090 at 07:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.430°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.374° in the next northern standstill on 24 July 2090 at 19:29 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 27 July 2090 at 01:19 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
