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 2 September 2075 at 08:34 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1782" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2075 after 21 days on 24 September 2075 at 10:31.
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 935 of Meeus index or 1888 from Brown series.
Length of current 935 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 936 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠218.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠251.8°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 23 August 2075 at 22:14 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 September 2075 at 19:44 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 402 336 km (250 000 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 711 km (251 476 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 22 August 2075 at 16:33 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 September 2075 at 03:09 in ♋ Cancer.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 22 August 2075 at 13:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.754°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.823° in the next northern standstill on 5 September 2075 at 01:11 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 10 September 2075 at 11:02 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
