Crescent ♍ Virgo
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 50% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 13 November 2063 at 10:56 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2063 after 22 days on 5 December 2063 at 20:06.
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 789 of Meeus index or 1742 from Brown series.
Length of current 789 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 23 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 790 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 48 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠55.4°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 31 October 2063 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 November 2063 at 13:06 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 364 441 km (226 453 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 684 km (228 468 mi).
13 days after its ascending node on 31 October 2063 at 07:08 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 November 2063 at 02:41 in ♍ Virgo.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 9 November 2063 at 09:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.872°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.805° in the next southern standstill on 22 November 2063 at 06:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 20 November 2063 at 06:09 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
