* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 22 August 2095 at 07:57 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1940" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2095 after 22 days on 14 September 2095 at 01:11.
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 1182 of Meeus index or 2135 from Brown series.
Length of current 1182 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 37 minutes. It is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 1183 length.
Length of current synodic month is 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠110.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠142.6°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 17 August 2095 at 18:05 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 September 2095 at 11:07 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 369 387 km (229 526 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 946 km (252 243 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 10 August 2095 at 21:46 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 August 2095 at 13:13 in ♊ Gemini.

9 days after previous South standstill on 12 August 2095 at 16:37 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.989°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.058° in the next northern standstill on 25 August 2095 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 29 August 2095 at 21:05 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
