Crescent ♓ Pisces
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 53% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 17 May 2093 at 17:47 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1948" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2093 after 22 days on 9 June 2093 at 10:09.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1154 of Meeus index or 2107 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 52 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠109.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠142°.
4 days after point of perigee on 13 May 2093 at 03:53 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 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 May 2093 at 21:26 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 367 980 km (228 652 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 700 km (252 090 mi).
1 day after descending node on 15 May 2093 at 15:06 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 May 2093 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 14 May 2093 at 12:06 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.516°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.600° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 May 2093 at 08:03 in ♋ Cancer.
In 7 days on 25 May 2093 at 06:07 in ♊ Gemini 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.
