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 2082 at 12:46 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2082 after 21 days on 5 December 2082 at 08:57.
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 1024 of Meeus index or 1977 from Brown series.
Length of current 1024 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 29 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1025 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠13.3°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 4 November 2082 at 15:15 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2082 at 09:39 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 377 381 km (234 494 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 890 km (222 383 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 14:12 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 26 November 2082 at 01:01 in ♒ Aquarius.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 9 November 2082 at 00:08 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.510°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.458° in the next southern standstill on 21 November 2082 at 22:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 20 November 2082 at 04:19 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
