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 ♏ Scorpio.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 20 January 2093 at 12:03 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1924" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2093 after 22 days on 11 February 2093 at 12:18.
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 1150 of Meeus index or 2103 from Brown series.
Length of current 1150 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. It is 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1151 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠6.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠22.9°. 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 10 January 2093 at 05:43 in ♊ Gemini. 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 25 January 2093 at 18:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 372 541 km (231 486 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 956 km (223 666 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 13 January 2093 at 16:59 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 January 2093 at 22:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 11 January 2093 at 17:53 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.841°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.833° in the next southern standstill on 25 January 2093 at 09:00 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 27 January 2093 at 03:22 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
