Crescent ♏ Scorpio
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 ♎ Libra.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 12 January 2091 at 12:34 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2091 after 22 days on 4 February 2091 at 04:46.
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 1125 of Meeus index or 2078 from Brown series.
Length of current 1125 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 2 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than next lunation 1126 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠65.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠102°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 9 January 2091 at 22:29 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 January 2091 at 14:57 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 363 910 km (226 123 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 798 km (251 530 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 9 January 2091 at 17:43 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 January 2091 at 02:24 in ♓ Pisces.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 4 January 2091 at 20:03 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.625°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.589° in the next southern standstill on 17 January 2091 at 18:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 19 January 2091 at 16:31 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
