* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 22 November 2035 at 05:16 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1937" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2035 after 22 days on 15 December 2035 at 00:33.
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 443 of Meeus index or 1396 from Brown series.
Length of current 443 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours and 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 444 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠110.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠144.1°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 17 November 2035 at 11:30 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 December 2035 at 08:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

3 days after previous North standstill on 18 November 2035 at 12:52 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.182°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.270° in the next southern standstill on 2 December 2035 at 07:25 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 29 November 2035 at 19:38 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
