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 ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 18 February 2093 at 21:32 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2093 after 21 days on 13 March 2093 at 04:06.
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 1151 of Meeus index or 2104 from Brown series.
Length of current 1151 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes. It is 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 1152 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠22.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠43.9°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 6 February 2093 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 February 2093 at 20:31 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 364 898 km (226 737 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 184 km (226 915 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 9 February 2093 at 23:58 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 February 2093 at 08:08 in ♒ Aquarius.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 8 February 2093 at 00:49 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.836°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.882° in the next southern standstill on 21 February 2093 at 17:26 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 25 February 2093 at 15:05 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
