Quarter ♌ Leo
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 27 October 2097 at 19:56 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 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2097 after 23 days on 19 November 2097 at 13:03.
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 1209 of Meeus index or 2162 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 23 minutes. It is 2 hours and 55 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 1 hour and 39 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 24 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠76.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠112.4°.
2 days after point of perigee on 24 October 2097 at 15:32 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 9 November 2097 at 12:12 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 364 110 km (226 247 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 184 km (251 770 mi).
6 days after ascending node on 21 October 2097 at 09:50 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 3 November 2097 at 09:02 in ♏ Scorpio.
6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 25 October 2097 at 18:37 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.974°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.959° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 November 2097 at 10:53 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 7 days on 4 November 2097 at 02:08 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.
