Crescent ♋ Cancer
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 44% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 7 September 2099 at 21:18 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1860" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2099 after 20 days on 29 September 2099 at 10:45.
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 1232 of Meeus index or 2185 from Brown series.
Length of current 1232 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 56 minutes. It is 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 1233 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.4°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 1 September 2099 at 19:45 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 September 2099 at 23:26 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 385 295 km (239 411 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 286 km (222 007 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 1 September 2099 at 08:09 in ♓ Pisces, 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 14 September 2099 at 23:44 in ♍ Virgo.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 23:00 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.676°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.686° in its southern standstill point on 21 September 2099 at 11:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 14 September 2099 at 16:50 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
