Crescent ♒ Aquarius
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 ♑ Capricorn.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 18 April 2093 at 11:20 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2093 after 22 days on 11 May 2093 at 02:17.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1153 of Meeus index or 2106 from Brown series.
Length of current 1153 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1154 length.
Length of current synodic month is 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠73.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠109.2°. 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 15 April 2093 at 13:30 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 May 2093 at 06:12 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 364 383 km (226 417 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 751 km (251 501 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 13:39 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 2 May 2093 at 12:02 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 17 April 2093 at 04:44 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.301°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.429° in the next northern standstill on 1 May 2093 at 00:13 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 25 April 2093 at 16:12 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
