* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 20 October 2095 at 04:08 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1852" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2095 after 22 days on 11 November 2095 at 19:05.
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 1184 of Meeus index or 2137 from Brown series.
Length of current 1184 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 38 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1185 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠168.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠192.1°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 13 October 2095 at 09:25 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 October 2095 at 21:48 in ♎ Libra.

3 days after its ascending node on 16 October 2095 at 18:35 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 October 2095 at 04:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.

1 day after previous North standstill on 18 October 2095 at 21:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.525°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.619° in the next southern standstill on 2 November 2095 at 15:39 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 28 October 2095 at 06:32 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
