Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 43% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 23 September 2092 at 19:05 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2092 after 20 days on 15 October 2092 at 10:25.
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 1146 of Meeus index or 2099 from Brown series.
Length of current 1146 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute. It is 48 minutes longer than next lunation 1147 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠282.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠312.2°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 22 September 2092 at 14:18 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 October 2092 at 11:15 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 403 501 km (250 724 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 907 km (227 364 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 12 September 2092 at 21:06 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 September 2092 at 04:29 in ♌ Leo.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 12:04 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠20.251°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-20.361° in its southern standstill point on 7 October 2092 at 16:31 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 1 October 2092 at 09:15 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
