Quarter ♍ Virgo
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 54% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 24 November 2032 at 22:48 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2032 after 22 days on 16 December 2032 at 20:49.
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 406 of Meeus index or 1359 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 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 2 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠248.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠286.1°.
10 days after point of perigee on 13 November 2032 at 15:20 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 25 November 2032 at 14:16 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 404 807 km (251 535 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 371 km (251 264 mi).
8 days after descending node on 15 November 2032 at 12:07 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 November 2032 at 16:30 in ♎ Libra.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 19 November 2032 at 06:10 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.095°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.128° at the point of next southern standstill on 3 December 2032 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 8 days on 2 December 2032 at 20:53 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
