    Will you please be more specific about what you mean? Moment has many different definitions, here are three:

    1. small portion of time
    2. present time
    3. tendency to produce motion

    Please use all necessary details to describe the process in your question so there can be no doubt about your meaning. Thank you.

    Cheers, Bobbywhy
