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 26 October 2089 at 16:06 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2089 after 22 days on 18 November 2089 at 03:02.
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 1110 of Meeus index or 2063 from Brown series.
Length of current 1110 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 1111 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠38.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠64.1°. 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°).
13 days after point of apogee on 13 October 2089 at 11:47 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 October 2089 at 23:05 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 364 057 km (226 215 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 917 km (229 234 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 18 October 2089 at 03:46 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 October 2089 at 06:06 in ♎ Libra.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 24 October 2089 at 02:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.262°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.316° in the next southern standstill on 6 November 2089 at 03:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 2 November 2089 at 12:55 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
