Quarter* ♋ Cancer
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 56% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 26 September 2062 at 00:11 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2062 after 22 days on 18 October 2062 at 08:18.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 775 of Meeus index or 1728 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 7 minutes. It is 2 hours and 36 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 32 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠31.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠54.6°.
12 days after point of apogee on 13 September 2062 at 08:35 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 September 2062 at 03:19 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 365 777 km (227 283 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 253 km (228 200 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 18 September 2062 at 11:25 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 1 October 2062 at 12:54 in ♍ Virgo.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 16:49 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.655°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.620° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 8 October 2062 at 21:13.
In 7 days on 2 October 2062 at 18:49 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
