Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 56% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♎ Libra.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 1 July 2093 at 23:24 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1870" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2093 after 6 days on 8 July 2093 at 17:14.
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 1156 of Meeus index or 2109 from Brown series.
Length of current 1156 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2093. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1157 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.3°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 25 June 2093 at 06:06 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 July 2093 at 18:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 383 219 km (238 121 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 096 km (221 889 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 25 June 2093 at 19:10 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 July 2093 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 24 June 2093 at 15:06 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.648°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.641° in the next southern standstill on 8 July 2093 at 09:04 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 8 July 2093 at 17:14 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
