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 ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 2 October 2075 at 03:13 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2075 after 22 days on 23 October 2075 at 22:49.
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 936 of Meeus index or 1889 from Brown series.
Length of current 936 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 41 minutes. It is 49 minutes longer than next lunation 937 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠251.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠287.7°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 20 September 2075 at 11:42 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 October 2075 at 14:34 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 404 835 km (251 553 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 168 km (251 138 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 18 September 2075 at 19:47 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 2 October 2075 at 05:26 in ♋ Cancer.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 18 September 2075 at 20:04 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.947°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.070° in the next northern standstill on 2 October 2075 at 08:38 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 9 October 2075 at 23:43 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
