Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 52% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 10 June 2080 at 17:20 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1806" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2080 after 21 days on 2 July 2080 at 04:09.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 994 of Meeus index or 1947 from Brown series.
Length of current 994 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than next lunation 995 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠323.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠341.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
3 days after point of apogee on 6 June 2080 at 12:37 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2080 at 21:12 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 396 934 km (246 643 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 167 km (223 176 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 28 May 2080 at 17:05 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 June 2080 at 05:55 in ♈ Aries.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 4 June 2080 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.386°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.379° in the next northern standstill on 18 June 2080 at 01:30 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 17 June 2080 at 18:40 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
