Quarter* ♌ Leo
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 56% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 26 October 2032 at 02:29 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♌ Leo later.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1794" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2032 after 22 days on 17 November 2032 at 06:42.
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 405 of Meeus index or 1358 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 19 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 28 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠215.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠248.6°.
8 days after point of perigee on 16 October 2032 at 21:27 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 October 2032 at 18:22 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 399 434 km (248 197 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 007 km (251 660 mi).
6 days after descending node on 19 October 2032 at 02:27 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 2 November 2032 at 09:04 in ♏ Scorpio.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 22 October 2032 at 20:01 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.051°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.070° at the point of next southern standstill on 6 November 2032 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 8 days on 3 November 2032 at 05:45 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.
