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 ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 12 September 2093 at 15:15 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1788" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2093 after 22 days on 4 October 2093 at 18:18.
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 1158 of Meeus index or 2111 from Brown series.
Length of current 1158 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 23 minutes. It is 1 hour and 6 minutes longer than next lunation 1159 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠215.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠247.8°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 3 September 2093 at 09:46 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 September 2093 at 07:53 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 400 921 km (249 121 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 825 km (251 547 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 2 September 2093 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 15 September 2093 at 11:15 in ♋ Cancer.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 1 September 2093 at 03:48 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.745°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.823° in the next northern standstill on 14 September 2093 at 09:50 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 20 September 2093 at 18:16 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
