Crescent ♊ Gemini
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 50% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 18 August 2090 at 11:05 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1828" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2090 after 21 days on 8 September 2090 at 22:44.
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 1120 of Meeus index or 2073 from Brown series.
Length of current 1120 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2090. It is 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 1121 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠331.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠348.5°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 13 August 2090 at 08:23 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 August 2090 at 01:13 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 392 105 km (243 643 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 032 km (222 471 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 13 August 2090 at 01:17 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 August 2090 at 13:58 in ♍ Virgo.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 6 August 2090 at 13:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.326°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.266° in the next northern standstill on 21 August 2090 at 05:49 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 25 August 2090 at 08:58 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
