Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 55% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 7 September 2095 at 01:26 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1825" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2095 after 6 days on 14 September 2095 at 01:11.
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 1183 of Meeus index or 2136 from Brown series.
Length of current 1183 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 1184 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠168.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
5 days after point of apogee on 2 September 2095 at 11:07 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 September 2095 at 22:53 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 392 697 km (244 011 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 244 km (222 603 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 00:47 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 19 September 2095 at 14:10 in ♊ Gemini.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 25 August 2095 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.058°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.188° in the next southern standstill on 9 September 2095 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 14 September 2095 at 01:11 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
