Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 46% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 25 June 2084 at 02:15 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1872" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2084 after 22 days on 17 July 2084 at 17:01.
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 1044 of Meeus index or 1997 from Brown series.
Length of current 1044 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1045 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠157°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠180.4°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 18 June 2084 at 20:15 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 July 2084 at 00:38 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 382 826 km (237 877 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 487 km (252 579 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 19 June 2084 at 20:57 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 July 2084 at 17:59 in ♋ Cancer.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 17 June 2084 at 21:43 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.635°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.643° in the next northern standstill on 1 July 2084 at 04:53 in ♊ Gemini.
After 7 days on 3 July 2084 at 01:38 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
