Gibbous ♉ Taurus
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 54% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 13 January 2095 at 02:28 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 0% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2095 after 7 days on 20 January 2095 at 12:48.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1175 of Meeus index or 2128 from Brown series.
Length of current 1175 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 1176 length.
Length of current synodic month is 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠317.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠337.7°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 9 January 2095 at 02:21 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 January 2095 at 03:56 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 367 363 km (228 269 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 464 km (251 944 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 5 January 2095 at 02:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 January 2095 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 6 January 2095 at 01:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.121°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.116° in the next northern standstill on 19 January 2095 at 00:03 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 20 January 2095 at 12:48 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
