* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 5 July 2094 at 00:54 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2094 after 23 days on 27 July 2094 at 17:39.
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 1168 of Meeus index or 2121 from Brown series.
Length of current 1168 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 1169 length.
Length of current synodic month is 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠109.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠141.9°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 30 June 2094 at 11:51 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 July 2094 at 04:45 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 367 124 km (228 120 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 856 km (252 187 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 28 June 2094 at 10:31 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 July 2094 at 11:47 in ♋ Cancer.

5 days after previous South standstill on 28 June 2094 at 17:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.311°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.299° in the next northern standstill on 11 July 2094 at 20:37 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 12 July 2094 at 13:36 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
