Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 47% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* 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 first ∠4° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2090 after 21 days on 11 July 2090 at 17:02.
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 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 19 June 2090 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 June 2090 at 23:26 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 404 237 km (251 181 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 238 km (227 570 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 19 June 2090 at 18:49 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 July 2090 at 01:54 in ♍ Virgo.

7 days after previous South standstill on 12 June 2090 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.449°. Next 6 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 7 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.
