Quarter ♐ Sagittarius
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 46% and growing larger. The 7 days young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 8 September 2092 at 20:15 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2092 after 7 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33.
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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1146 of Meeus index or 2099 from Brown series.
Length of current 1146 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute. It is 48 minutes longer than next lunation 1147 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠282.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠312.2°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:44, this is 13 days after last apogee on 25 August 2092 at 18:58 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 22 September 2092 at 14:18 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 369 784 km (229 773 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2092. It is 7 276 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 572 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after its ascending node on 30 August 2092 at 21:39 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 September 2092 at 21:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 28 August 2092 at 04:01 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.103°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.164° in the next southern standstill on 10 September 2092 at 11:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
