Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 48% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 8 April 2094 at 08:46 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2094 after 22 days on 30 April 2094 at 13:54.
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 1165 of Meeus index or 2118 from Brown series.
Length of current 1165 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 53 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2094. It is 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 1166 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠24.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠45.7°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 27 March 2094 at 05:18 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 April 2094 at 03:26 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 365 570 km (227 155 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 456 km (227 084 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 7 April 2094 at 19:27 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 April 2094 at 16:57 in ♋ Cancer.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 7 April 2094 at 19:58 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.963°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.077° in the next northern standstill on 20 April 2094 at 20:13 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 15 April 2094 at 01:37 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
