Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 51% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 23 October 2092 at 14:07 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1792" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2092 after 21 days on 14 November 2092 at 03:04.
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 1147 of Meeus index or 2100 from Brown series.
Length of current 1147 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 13 minutes. It is 6 minutes longer than next lunation 1148 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠312.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠334°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 20 October 2092 at 09:17 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 November 2092 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 399 951 km (248 518 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 684 km (224 119 mi).
13 days after its descending node on 9 October 2092 at 23:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 October 2092 at 08:18 in ♌ Leo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 21 October 2092 at 20:05 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.498°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.608° in the next southern standstill on 3 November 2092 at 23:31 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 30 October 2092 at 19:28 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
