Crescent ♌ Leo
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 42% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 21 October 2084 at 16:49 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2084 after 20 days on 12 November 2084 at 10:10.
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 1048 of Meeus index or 2001 from Brown series.
Length of current 1048 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 30 minutes. It is 38 minutes longer than next lunation 1049 length.
Length of current synodic month is 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠268.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠301.9°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 21 October 2084 at 06:46 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 November 2084 at 09:00 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 404 706 km (251 473 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 057 km (228 700 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 20 October 2084 at 10:21 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 2084 at 01:21 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.
4 days after previous North standstill on 18 October 2084 at 09:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.073°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.986° in the next southern standstill on 1 November 2084 at 10:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 29 October 2084 at 09:47 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
