Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 49% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 12 October 2093 at 10:10 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1923".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2093 after 21 days on 3 November 2093 at 06:46.
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 1159 of Meeus index or 2112 from Brown series.
Length of current 1159 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 17 minutes. It is 53 minutes longer than next lunation 1160 length.
Length of current synodic month is 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠247.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠284.3°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 1 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 405 269 km (251 822 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 214 km (251 167 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 13:29 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 26 October 2093 at 05:22 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 13:29 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous North standstill on 11 October 2093 at 17:32 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.080°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.213° in the next southern standstill on 25 October 2093 at 15:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 20 October 2093 at 07:33 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
