Crescent ♌ Leo
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 50% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 25 October 2081 at 11:13 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 0.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1938" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2081 after 22 days on 16 November 2081 at 13:19.
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 1011 of Meeus index or 1964 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 6 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠12.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠29.7°.
10 days after point of apogee on 14 October 2081 at 14:03 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 October 2081 at 07:55 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 369 868 km (229 825 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 740 km (224 775 mi).
11 days after ascending node on 14 October 2081 at 11:52 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 28 October 2081 at 09:25 in ♍ Virgo.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 22 October 2081 at 20:04 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.369°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.291° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 November 2081 at 12:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 6 days on 1 November 2081 at 03:04 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.
