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.
Length of current 937 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes. It is 24 minutes longer than next lunation 938 length.
Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠287.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠316.5°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 30 October 2075 at 10:53 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 November 2075 at 05:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 404 774 km (251 515 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 081 km (226 851 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 29 October 2075 at 07:44 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 November 2075 at 22:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 29 October 2075 at 16:50 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.331°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.417° in the next southern standstill on 12 November 2075 at 07:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 8 November 2075 at 11:35 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
