Quarter ♓ Pisces
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 46% and growing larger. The 7 days young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 27 November 2063 at 22:59 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2063 after 8 days on 5 December 2063 at 20:06.
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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 790 of Meeus index or 1743 from Brown series.
Length of current 790 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 54 minutes. It is 2 hours and 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 791 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠55.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠88.4°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 16 November 2063 at 13:06 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 November 2063 at 12:23 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 404 893 km (251 589 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 245 km (251 186 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 08:58 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 11 December 2063 at 02:54 in ♌ Leo.
At 08:58 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
5 days after previous South standstill on 22 November 2063 at 06:16 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.805°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.761° in the next northern standstill on 6 December 2063 at 16:08 in ♊ Gemini.
After 8 days on 5 December 2063 at 20:06 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
