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 30 November 2075 at 19:22 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1812" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2075 after 20 days on 22 December 2075 at 08:48.
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 938 of Meeus index or 1891 from Brown series.
Length of current 938 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes. It is 17 minutes longer than next lunation 939 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠316.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠337.3°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 27 November 2075 at 06:17 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 December 2075 at 07:28 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 395 642 km (245 841 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 912 km (223 639 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 25 November 2075 at 12:09 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 December 2075 at 06:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 26 November 2075 at 00:59 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.487°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.506° in the next southern standstill on 9 December 2075 at 16:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 7 December 2075 at 23:03 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
