Crescent ♌ Leo
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 ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 22 October 2065 at 11:53 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1817" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2065 after 21 days on 13 November 2065 at 00:37.
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 813 of Meeus index or 1766 from Brown series.
Length of current 813 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 24 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2065. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 814 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠327.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠345.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
4 days after point of apogee on 17 October 2065 at 22:01 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 October 2065 at 08:37 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 394 408 km (245 074 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 206 km (222 579 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 21 October 2065 at 20:40 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 November 2065 at 11:43 in ♑ Capricorn.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 19 October 2065 at 05:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.664°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.584° in the next southern standstill on 1 November 2065 at 09:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 29 October 2065 at 11:48 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
