Event: Last quarter moon
Date: Friday, April 13, 2012 at 05:51:00 CDT

Brief Explanation: A last quarter moon is one of the phases of the moon. The moon is said to be in a last quarter phase when it is half-illuminated by the sub directly. During this phase, the moon rises around midnight. At dawn, the moon appears at its highest, and then it sets around noon. Another thing that sets a last quarter aside from a first quarter is the the fraction of the disk of the moon which is illuminated by the sun decreases in the former and increases in the latter.
