Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 50% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 15 July 2093 at 10:54 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1861" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2093 after 22 days on 7 August 2093 at 00:23.
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 1156 of Meeus index or 2109 from Brown series.
Length of current 1156 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2093. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1157 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.3°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 8 July 2093 at 18:17 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 July 2093 at 09:07 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 385 089 km (239 283 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 411 km (252 532 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 9 July 2093 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 July 2093 at 01:17 in ♋ Cancer.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 8 July 2093 at 09:04 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.641°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.635° in the next northern standstill on 21 July 2093 at 21:21 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 23 July 2093 at 12:36 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
