* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 1 July 2089 at 03:43 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1834" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2089 after 21 days on 22 July 2089 at 14:50.
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 1106 of Meeus index or 2059 from Brown series.
Length of current 1106 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 3 minutes. It is 23 minutes longer than next lunation 1107 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠331.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠348.5°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 26 June 2089 at 00:52 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 July 2089 at 18:12 in ♋ Cancer.

8 days after previous South standstill on 22 June 2089 at 12:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.620°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.574° in the next northern standstill on 6 July 2089 at 18:10 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 8 July 2089 at 01:47 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
