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.
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.
Length of current 406 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes longer than next lunation 407 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠248.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠286.1°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 13 November 2032 at 15:20 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 November 2032 at 14:16 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 404 807 km (251 535 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 371 km (251 264 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 15 November 2032 at 12:07 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 November 2032 at 16:30 in ♎ Libra.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 19 November 2032 at 06:10 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.095°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.128° in the next southern standstill on 3 December 2032 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 8 days on 2 December 2032 at 20:53 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
