Gibbous ♓ Pisces
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 62% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 15 November 2094 at 10:45 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2094 after 5 days on 22 November 2094 at 05:27.
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 1173 of Meeus index or 2126 from Brown series.
Length of current 1173 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes longer than next lunation 1174 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠250.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠287.7°. 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 2 November 2094 at 15:27 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 November 2094 at 11:26 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 363 359 km (225 781 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 623 km (228 430 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 11 November 2094 at 11:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 November 2094 at 07:15 in ♊ Gemini.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 12 November 2094 at 09:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.067°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.109° in the next northern standstill on 25 November 2094 at 07:27 in ♋ Cancer.
After 5 days on 22 November 2094 at 05:27 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
