Quarter ♓ Pisces
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 49% and growing larger. The 7 days young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 19 November 2080 at 14:20 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2080 after 7 days on 27 November 2080 at 05:14.
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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1000 of Meeus index or 1953 from Brown series.
Length of current 1000 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 33 minutes. It is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 1001 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠82.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠119.5°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 18 November 2080 at 12:07 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 November 2080 at 07:40 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 404 939 km (251 617 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 156 km (227 519 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 8 November 2080 at 04:19 in ♎ Libra, 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 22 November 2080 at 09:33 in ♈ Aries.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 14 November 2080 at 19:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.509°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.451° in the next northern standstill on 28 November 2080 at 22:14 in ♊ Gemini.
After 7 days on 27 November 2080 at 05:14 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
