* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 14 November 2090 at 19:58 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1946" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2090 after 22 days on 7 December 2090 at 01:14.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1123 of Meeus index or 2076 from Brown series.
Length of current 1123 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours and 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 1124 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠19.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠39°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 3 November 2090 at 02:54 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2090 at 02:49 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 368 268 km (228 831 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 061 km (226 217 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 2 November 2090 at 17:56 in ♓ Pisces, 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 16 November 2090 at 15:51 in ♍ Virgo.

3 days after previous North standstill on 11 November 2090 at 03:00 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.482°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.552° in the next southern standstill on 23 November 2090 at 22:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 21 November 2090 at 12:48 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
