Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 59% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 7 September 2084 at 16:23 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2084 after 5 days on 14 September 2084 at 09:15.
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 1047 of Meeus index or 2000 from Brown series.
Length of current 1047 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 1048 length.
Length of current synodic month is 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠232.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠268.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
12 days after point of apogee on 26 August 2084 at 17:37 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 September 2084 at 14:43 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 364 577 km (226 538 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 932 km (226 758 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 27 August 2084 at 05:21 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 September 2084 at 23:14 in ♑ Capricorn.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 7 September 2084 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.423°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.317° in the next northern standstill on 21 September 2084 at 01:38 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 14 September 2084 at 09:15 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
