Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 43% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 24 June 2095 at 21:55 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2095 after 21 days on 17 July 2095 at 08:31.
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 1180 of Meeus index or 2133 from Brown series.
Length of current 1180 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour and 38 minutes shorter than next lunation 1181 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠47.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.3°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 17:27, this is 14 days after last apogee on 11 June 2095 at 06:34 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 9 July 2095 at 01:10 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 369 538 km (229 620 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2095. It is 7 030 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 818 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after its descending node on 17 June 2095 at 07:30 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 June 2095 at 06:21 in ♊ Gemini.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 18 June 2095 at 23:27 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.916°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.901° in the next northern standstill on 1 July 2095 at 21:09 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 1 July 2095 at 19:54 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
