Moon at Last Quarter

2013 Nov 25

The Moon will reach last quarter – roughly a week after passing full moon and a week before it will reach new moon. At this point in its monthly cycle of phases, it is only visible late in the night and in the pre-dawn and early morning sky.

At this time the Moon will lie at a declination of +05°50′ in the constellation Sextens, and so will appear high in the sky at all but the most extreme latitudes. It will be visible at all latitudes between 85°N and 74°S.
