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 ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 29 October 2063 at 02:13 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2063 after 7 days on 6 November 2063 at 05:22.
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 789 of Meeus index or 1742 from Brown series.
Length of current 789 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 23 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 790 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 48 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠55.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 19 October 2063 at 20:10 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 31 October 2063 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 402 511 km (250 109 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 751 km (251 501 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 18 October 2063 at 00:18 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 October 2063 at 07:08 in ♓ Pisces.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 25 October 2063 at 21:16 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.978°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.872° in the next northern standstill on 9 November 2063 at 09:36 in ♊ Gemini.
After 7 days on 6 November 2063 at 05:22 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
