Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 45% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 10 March 2094 at 00:22 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1937" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2094 after 21 days on 1 April 2094 at 00:11.
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 1164 of Meeus index or 2117 from Brown series.
Length of current 1164 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 1 minute. It is 8 minutes longer than next lunation 1165 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠24.6°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 27 February 2094 at 15:03 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 March 2094 at 04:25 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 369 994 km (229 904 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 366 km (223 921 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 25 February 2094 at 12:58 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 March 2094 at 18:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 25 February 2094 at 05:34 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.582°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.707° in the next southern standstill on 11 March 2094 at 14:07 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 16 March 2094 at 15:44 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
