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 5 November 2099 at 19:42 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1927" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2099 after 22 days on 27 November 2099 at 21:22.
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 1234 of Meeus index or 2187 from Brown series.
Length of current 1234 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 57 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 1235 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠27.7°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 26 October 2099 at 03:06 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 November 2099 at 19:35 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 371 936 km (231 110 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 208 km (224 444 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 25 October 2099 at 20:01 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 November 2099 at 18:31 in ♍ Virgo.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 2 November 2099 at 11:20 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.524°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.455° in the next southern standstill on 15 November 2099 at 04:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 12 November 2099 at 11:29 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
