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 ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 10 May 2091 at 08:36 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1818" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2091 after 22 days on 1 June 2091 at 17:31.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1129 of Meeus index or 2082 from Brown series.
Length of current 1129 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1130 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠189.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠214.7°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 2 May 2091 at 14:03 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 May 2091 at 03:48 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 394 346 km (245 035 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 973 km (252 260 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 29 April 2091 at 04:04 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 May 2091 at 22:03 in ♓ Pisces.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 6 May 2091 at 22:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.782°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.883° in the next northern standstill on 21 May 2091 at 13:53 in ♊ Gemini.
After 8 days on 18 May 2091 at 13:07 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
