Crescent ♍ Virgo
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 46% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 21 November 2065 at 03:51 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1870" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2065 after 21 days on 12 December 2065 at 19:52.
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 814 of Meeus index or 1767 from Brown series.
Length of current 814 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 51 minutes. It is 57 minutes shorter than next lunation 815 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 16 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠345.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠0.7°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 14 November 2065 at 06:34 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2065 at 20:39 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 383 256 km (238 144 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 718 km (221 654 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 17 November 2065 at 22:02 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 November 2065 at 17:19 in ♑ Capricorn.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 15 November 2065 at 11:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.499°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.483° in the next southern standstill on 28 November 2065 at 19:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 27 November 2065 at 21:40 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
