Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 52% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 20 September 2095 at 16:15 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1911".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2095 after 22 days on 13 October 2095 at 09:30.
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 1183 of Meeus index or 2136 from Brown series.
Length of current 1183 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 1184 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠168.3°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 14 September 2095 at 22:53 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 September 2095 at 20:21 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 375 358 km (233 237 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 578 km (252 636 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 19 September 2095 at 14:10 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 October 2095 at 02:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 9 September 2095 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.188°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.292° in the next northern standstill on 21 September 2095 at 14:29 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 28 September 2095 at 12:54 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
