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 ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 11 November 2036 at 01:28 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2036 after 23 days on 3 December 2036 at 14:08.
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 455 of Meeus index or 1408 from Brown series.
Length of current 455 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 24 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 456 length.
Length of current synodic month is 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76°. 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°).
13 days after point of apogee on 28 October 2036 at 07:33 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 November 2036 at 18:21 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 363 691 km (225 987 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 165 km (230 010 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 12:58 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 23 November 2036 at 22:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 12:58 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
2 days after previous North standstill on 8 November 2036 at 06:31 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.402°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.497° in the next southern standstill on 21 November 2036 at 10:22 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 18 November 2036 at 00:14 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
