Crescent ♊ Gemini
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 ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 25 August 2092 at 00:32 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2092 after 21 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33.
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 1145 of Meeus index or 2098 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 20 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 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 24 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 45 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠246.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠282.2°.
Moon is at apogee at 18:58. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 13 August 2092 at 17:47 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 8 September 2092 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 404 285 km (251 211 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2092. It is 1 123 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 234 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
8 days after descending node on 16 August 2092 at 14:00 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 30 August 2092 at 21:39 in ♌ Leo.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 14 August 2092 at 05:05 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.084°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.103° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 August 2092 at 04:01 in ♋ Cancer.
In 7 days on 1 September 2092 at 22:14 in ♍ Virgo 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.
