Crescent ♍ Virgo
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 45% and getting smaller. The 22 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 ∠25° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2036 after 22 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 22 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:21, this is 14 days after last apogee on 28 October 2036 at 07:33 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 25 November 2036 at 04:24 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 370 165 km (230 010 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2036. It is 7 657 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 191 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 10 November 2036 at 12:58 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 November 2036 at 22:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 8 November 2036 at 06:31 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.402°. Next 9 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 6 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.
