Quarter* ♎ Libra
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 ♎ Libra.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 1 January 2084 at 01:54 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1891" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2084 after 22 days on 22 January 2084 at 23:15.
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 1038 of Meeus index or 1991 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 52 minutes. It is 44 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 1 hour and 52 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠359.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠15°.
8 days after point of apogee on 22 December 2083 at 20:30 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 January 2084 at 20:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 379 002 km (235 501 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 232 km (222 595 mi).
5 days after descending node on 26 December 2083 at 09:52 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 January 2084 at 12:22 in ♑ Capricorn.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 23 December 2083 at 04:56 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.297°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.325° at the point of next southern standstill on 6 January 2084 at 00:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 7 days on 7 January 2084 at 17:17 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
