Crescent ♉ Taurus
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 48% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 26 July 2092 at 07:31 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2092 after 21 days on 17 August 2092 at 09:22.
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 1144 of Meeus index or 2097 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 3 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠215.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠246.7°.
9 days after point of perigee on 17 July 2092 at 01:42 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 29 July 2092 at 00:58 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 401 746 km (249 633 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 974 km (251 639 mi).
6 days after descending node on 20 July 2092 at 04:19 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 3 August 2092 at 13:51 in ♌ Leo.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 17 July 2092 at 20:34 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.092°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.082° at the point of next northern standstill on 31 July 2092 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer.
In 7 days on 3 August 2092 at 09:54 in ♌ Leo 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.
