Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 55% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 3 December 2091 at 22:55 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2091 after 22 days on 25 December 2091 at 21:59.
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 1136 of Meeus index or 2089 from Brown series.
Length of current 1136 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 12 minutes. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1137 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠4.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠20.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
9 days after point of apogee on 23 November 2091 at 23:32 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 December 2091 at 08:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 375 319 km (233 212 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 394 km (223 317 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 2 December 2091 at 18:52 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 December 2091 at 07:03 in ♒ Aquarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 28 November 2091 at 22:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.417°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.452° in the next southern standstill on 11 December 2091 at 21:10 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 10 December 2091 at 13:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
