Quarter ♍ Virgo
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 55% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 3 December 2080 at 22:52 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2080 after 23 days on 26 December 2080 at 17:03.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1000 of Meeus index or 1953 from Brown series.
Length of current 1000 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 33 minutes. It is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 1001 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠82.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠119.5°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 30 November 2080 at 07:40 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 December 2080 at 08:18 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 364 429 km (226 446 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 296 km (251 839 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 22 November 2080 at 09:33 in ♈ Aries, 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 5 December 2080 at 06:12 in ♎ Libra.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 28 November 2080 at 22:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.451°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.401° in the next southern standstill on 12 December 2080 at 02:19 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 11 December 2080 at 07:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
