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 ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 23 November 2058 at 00:16 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 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2058 after 6 days on 30 November 2058 at 03:17.
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 728 of Meeus index or 1681 from Brown series.
Length of current 728 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes longer than next lunation 729 length.
Length of current synodic month is 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠294°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠321.5°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 20 November 2058 at 22:40 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 December 2058 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 364 259 km (226 340 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 781 km (251 519 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 16 November 2058 at 23:56 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 November 2058 at 23:07 in ♉ Taurus.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 19 November 2058 at 09:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.009°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.007° in the next northern standstill on 2 December 2058 at 15:32 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 30 November 2058 at 03:17 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
