Gibbous ♓ Pisces
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 55% and growing larger. The 8 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 about ∠12° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2063 after 7 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 8 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 12:23, this is 11 days after last perigee on 16 November 2063 at 13:06 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 11 December 2063 at 13:44 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 404 245 km (251 186 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 163 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 464 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 27 November 2063 at 08:58 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 December 2063 at 02:54 in ♌ Leo.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 22 November 2063 at 06:16 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.805°. Next 8 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 7 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.
