* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 2 November 2045 at 02:09 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2045 after 21 days on 24 November 2045 at 11:43.
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 566 of Meeus index or 1519 from Brown series.
Length of current 566 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 567 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠34.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠58.5°. 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 20 October 2045 at 04:05 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 November 2045 at 21:44 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 363 724 km (226 008 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 185 km (228 780 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 17:28 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 16 November 2045 at 00:56 in ♒ Aquarius.

3 days after previous North standstill on 29 October 2045 at 17:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.401°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.320° in the next southern standstill on 11 November 2045 at 15:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 8 November 2045 at 21:49 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
