Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 56% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 20 June 2090 at 03:33 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2090 after 22 days on 11 July 2090 at 17:02.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1118 of Meeus index or 2071 from Brown series.
Length of current 1118 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 34 minutes longer than next lunation 1119 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠280.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 00:40, this is 14 days after last perigee on 4 June 2090 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 30 June 2090 at 23:26 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 404 160 km (251 133 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2090. It is 1 248 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 109 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 18:49 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 3 July 2090 at 01:54 in ♍ Virgo.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 12 June 2090 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.449°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.446° in the next northern standstill on 27 June 2090 at 08:45 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 27 June 2090 at 17:11 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
