Quarter ♌ Leo
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 ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 31 October 2075 at 23:26 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2075 after 22 days on 22 November 2075 at 14:20.
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 937 of Meeus index or 1890 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes. It is 24 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 52 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠287.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠316.5°.
1 day after point of apogee on 30 October 2075 at 10:53 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 11 November 2075 at 05:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 404 774 km (251 515 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 081 km (226 851 mi).
2 days after ascending node on 29 October 2075 at 07:44 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 11 November 2075 at 22:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 29 October 2075 at 16:50 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.331°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.417° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 November 2075 at 07:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 7 days on 8 November 2075 at 11:35 in ♏ Scorpio the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
