Gibbous ♎ Libra
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 53% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 5 June 2090 at 05:45 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2090 after 6 days on 12 June 2090 at 05:18.
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 1118 of Meeus index or 2071 from Brown series.
Length of current 1118 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 34 minutes longer than next lunation 1119 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠280.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 4 June 2090 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 June 2090 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 363 395 km (225 803 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 160 km (251 133 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 23 May 2090 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces, 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 6 June 2090 at 01:10 in ♍ Virgo.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 30 May 2090 at 23:17 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.414°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.449° in the next southern standstill on 12 June 2090 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 12 June 2090 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
