Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 60% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 10 August 2092 at 15:18 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2092 after 5 days on 17 August 2092 at 09:22.
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 1145 of Meeus index or 2098 from Brown series.
Length of current 1145 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 20 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than next lunation 1146 length.
Length of current synodic month is 24 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 45 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠246.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠282.2°. 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°).
13 days after point of apogee on 29 July 2092 at 00:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 August 2092 at 17:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 363 583 km (225 920 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 986 km (228 035 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 3 August 2092 at 13:51 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 August 2092 at 14:00 in ♒ Aquarius.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 31 July 2092 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.082°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.084° in the next southern standstill on 14 August 2092 at 05:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 5 days on 17 August 2092 at 09:22 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
