Crescent ♌ Leo
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 52% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 4 November 2080 at 15:10 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2080 after 22 days on 27 November 2080 at 05:14.
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 999 of Meeus index or 1952 from Brown series.
Length of current 999 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 53 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 1000 length.
Length of current synodic month is 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠51.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠82.5°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 09:49, this is 13 days after last apogee on 21 October 2080 at 15:25 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 18 November 2080 at 12:07 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 370 160 km (230 007 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2080. It is 7 652 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 196 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after its ascending node on 26 October 2080 at 03:27 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 November 2080 at 04:19 in ♎ Libra.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 1 November 2080 at 15:18 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.580°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.509° in the next southern standstill on 14 November 2080 at 19:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 11 November 2080 at 15:37 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
