Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 53% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 2 November 2083 at 19:30 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1807" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2083 after 21 days on 24 November 2083 at 08:23.
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 1036 of Meeus index or 1989 from Brown series.
Length of current 1036 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 52 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2083. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 1037 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠325°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠343.6°. 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 29 October 2083 at 11:06 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 November 2083 at 19:25 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 396 571 km (246 418 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 487 km (222 753 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 04:57 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 14 November 2083 at 20:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

3 days after previous North standstill on 29 October 2083 at 17:47 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.436°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.371° in the next southern standstill on 12 November 2083 at 02:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 9 November 2083 at 20:15 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
