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 ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 10 November 2043 at 00:13 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1846" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2043 after 6 days on 16 November 2043 at 21:52.
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 542 of Meeus index or 1495 from Brown series.
Length of current 542 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 40 minutes. It is 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 543 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 7 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠154°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠179.1°. 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 4 November 2043 at 13:04 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 17 November 2043 at 09:11 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 388 322 km (241 292 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 949 km (221 798 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 29 October 2043 at 13:05 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 November 2043 at 02:29 in ♓ Pisces.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 6 November 2043 at 02:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.556°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.494° in the next northern standstill on 19 November 2043 at 05:40 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 16 November 2043 at 21:52 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
