Crescent ♈ Aries
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 53% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 13 June 2096 at 18:09 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1925" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2096 after 22 days on 5 July 2096 at 17:02.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1192 of Meeus index or 2145 from Brown series.
Length of current 1192 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 36 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2096. It is 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 1193 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.7°. 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 3 June 2096 at 06:22 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 18 June 2096 at 18:27 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 372 335 km (231 358 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 025 km (224 331 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 4 June 2096 at 19:21 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 June 2096 at 09:30 in ♊ Gemini.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2096 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.345°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.330° in the next northern standstill on 21 June 2096 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 20 June 2096 at 09:12 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
