Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 53% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 5 October 2091 at 19:53 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1822" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2091 after 21 days on 27 October 2091 at 09:18.
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 1134 of Meeus index or 2087 from Brown series.
Length of current 1134 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 54 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2091. It is 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 1135 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠332.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠349.5°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 30 September 2091 at 16:41 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 October 2091 at 09:20 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 393 452 km (244 480 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 592 km (222 197 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 25 September 2091 at 00:30 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 October 2091 at 12:42 in ♍ Virgo.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 08:31 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠19.007°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-19.095° in its southern standstill point on 17 October 2091 at 23:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 12 October 2091 at 18:29 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
