Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 52% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 22 September 2065 at 18:09 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1912".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2065 after 21 days on 14 October 2065 at 07:04.
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 812 of Meeus index or 1765 from Brown series.
Length of current 812 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 45 minutes. It is 21 minutes longer than next lunation 813 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠303.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠327.1°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 20 September 2065 at 05:27 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 October 2065 at 02:38 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 402 449 km (250 070 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 386 km (225 176 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 10 September 2065 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 September 2065 at 18:20 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 21 September 2065 at 23:05 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.907°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.796° in the next southern standstill on 5 October 2065 at 01:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 30 September 2065 at 02:24 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
