Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 49% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 26 August 2035 at 09:08 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2035 after 22 days on 17 September 2035 at 14:23.
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 440 of Meeus index or 1393 from Brown series.
Length of current 440 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 441 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠46.4°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 14 August 2035 at 06:09 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 August 2035 at 02:28 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 365 659 km (227 210 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 533 km (227 132 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 19 August 2035 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 September 2035 at 19:14 in ♌ Leo.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 14 August 2035 at 22:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.761°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.744° in the next northern standstill on 28 August 2035 at 17:25 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 2 September 2035 at 01:59 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
