* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 26 November 2097 at 04:07 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1934" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2097 after 22 days on 19 December 2097 at 00:04.
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 1210 of Meeus index or 2163 from Brown series.
Length of current 1210 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 18 minutes. It is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than next lunation 1211 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠112.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠145.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
5 days after point of perigee on 21 November 2097 at 08:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 December 2097 at 05:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 370 701 km (230 343 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 180 km (252 389 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 17 November 2097 at 19:55 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 30 November 2097 at 14:46 in ♎ Libra.

4 days after previous North standstill on 22 November 2097 at 02:03 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.924°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.873° in the next southern standstill on 5 December 2097 at 17:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 3 December 2097 at 19:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
