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 17 November 2091 at 23:38 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1834" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2091 after 7 days on 26 November 2091 at 03:43.
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 1136 of Meeus index or 2089 from Brown series.
Length of current 1136 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 12 minutes. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1137 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠4.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠20.8°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 10 November 2091 at 21:06 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 November 2091 at 23:32 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 390 842 km (242 858 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 275 km (252 448 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 04:24 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 2 December 2091 at 18:52 in ♌ Leo.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 14 November 2091 at 09:21 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.311°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.417° in the next northern standstill on 28 November 2091 at 22:15 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 26 November 2091 at 03:43 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
