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 28 November 2090 at 23:40 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2090 after 7 days on 7 December 2090 at 01:14.
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 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1124 of Meeus index or 2077 from Brown series.
Length of current 1124 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 41 minutes. It is 2 hours and 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 1125 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠39°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠65.8°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 19 November 2090 at 02:49 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 November 2090 at 20:42 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 404 251 km (251 190 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 549 km (251 375 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 20:13 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 13 December 2090 at 16:31 in ♍ Virgo.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 23 November 2090 at 22:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.552°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.615° in the next northern standstill on 8 December 2090 at 10:26 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 7 December 2090 at 01:14 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
