Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 43% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 24 November 2070 at 20:20 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1900" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2070 after 22 days on 17 December 2070 at 16:05.
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 876 of Meeus index or 1829 from Brown series.
Length of current 876 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 877 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠134.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠163.2°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 19 November 2070 at 07:55 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 December 2070 at 13:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 377 293 km (234 439 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 585 km (252 640 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 15 November 2070 at 11:41 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 November 2070 at 03:19 in ♎ Libra.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 20 November 2070 at 04:59 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.488°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.543° in the next southern standstill on 4 December 2070 at 00:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 2 December 2070 at 16:53 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
