Crescent ♈ Aries
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 44% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 10 June 2099 at 21:49 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2099 after 21 days on 2 July 2099 at 14:21.
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 1229 of Meeus index or 2182 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 54 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 50 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 19 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠261.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠294.6°.
1 day after point of apogee on 10 June 2099 at 21:17 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 June 2099 at 09:41 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 405 301 km (251 842 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 734 km (229 121 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 21:49 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 25 June 2099 at 06:00 in ♎ Libra.
At 21:49 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
7 days since the previous standstill on 4 June 2099 at 10:57 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.425°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.404° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 June 2099 at 20:43 in ♊ Gemini.
In 7 days on 18 June 2099 at 16:10 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
