Quarter ♓ Pisces
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 54% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 10 June 2099 at 21:49 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2099 after 22 days on 2 July 2099 at 14:21.
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 1229 of Meeus index or 2182 from Brown series.
Length of current 1229 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 54 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1230 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠261.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠294.6°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 21:17, this is 12 days after last perigee on 29 May 2099 at 07:58 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 June 2099 at 09:41 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 404 057 km (251 069 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2099. It is 1 351 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 6 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after its descending node on 29 May 2099 at 05:10 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 June 2099 at 21:49 in ♓ Pisces.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 4 June 2099 at 10:57 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.425°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.404° in the next northern standstill on 18 June 2099 at 20:43 in ♊ Gemini.
After 8 days on 18 June 2099 at 16:10 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
