* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 21 June 2041 at 03:12 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2041 after 22 days on 13 July 2041 at 19:01.
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 512 of Meeus index or 1465 from Brown series.
Length of current 512 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 513 length.
Length of current synodic month is 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 46 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠88.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠123.4°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 17 June 2041 at 11:48 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 July 2041 at 06:46 in ♍ Virgo.

9 days after its descending node on 11 June 2041 at 14:42 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 June 2041 at 08:57 in ♉ Taurus.

6 days after previous South standstill on 15 June 2041 at 09:11 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.308°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.286° in the next northern standstill on 28 June 2041 at 10:46 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 28 June 2041 at 11:17 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
