Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 54% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 28 November 2067 at 22:06 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2067 after 22 days on 20 December 2067 at 15:41.
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 839 of Meeus index or 1792 from Brown series.
Length of current 839 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 51 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes longer than next lunation 840 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 56 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠274.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠307.7°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 03:30, this is 13 days after last perigee on 14 November 2067 at 16:11 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 10 December 2067 at 00:36 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 404 463 km (251 322 mi) away from Earth. It is 945 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 246 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
6 days after its descending node on 21 November 2067 at 22:58 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 December 2067 at 08:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 22 November 2067 at 11:11 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.275°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.279° in the next southern standstill on 6 December 2067 at 20:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 8 days on 6 December 2067 at 14:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
