Crescent ♌ Leo
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 30 October 2029 at 11:32 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1872" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2029 after 21 days on 21 November 2029 at 04:03.
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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 368 of Meeus index or 1321 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 35 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠3.8°.
7 days after point of apogee on 23 October 2029 at 02:02 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 5 November 2029 at 23:09 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 382 857 km (237 896 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 900 km (221 767 mi).
3 days after descending node on 27 October 2029 at 05:23 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 November 2029 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 26 October 2029 at 12:40 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.659°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.613° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 November 2029 at 11:00 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 6 days on 6 November 2029 at 04:24 in ♏ Scorpio the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
