Gibbous ♓ Pisces
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 61% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 10 November 2089 at 07:28 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2089 after 6 days on 18 November 2089 at 03:02.
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 1111 of Meeus index or 2064 from Brown series.
Length of current 1111 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 17 minutes. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 1112 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 32 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠64.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠99°. 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 10 November 2089 at 07:48 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 November 2089 at 17:03 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 404 876 km (251 578 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 024 km (229 301 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 31 October 2089 at 06:06 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 November 2089 at 10:59 in ♈ Aries.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 6 November 2089 at 03:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.316°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.377° in the next northern standstill on 20 November 2089 at 09:39 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 18 November 2089 at 03:02 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
