Gibbous ♓ Pisces
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 ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 17 November 2091 at 23:38 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1834" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2091 after 7 days on 26 November 2091 at 03:43.
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 1136 of Meeus index or 2089 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 12 minutes. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠4.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠20.8°.
7 days after point of perigee on 10 November 2091 at 21:06 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 23 November 2091 at 23:32 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 390 842 km (242 858 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 275 km (252 448 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 04:24 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 2 December 2091 at 18:52 in ♌ Leo.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 14 November 2091 at 09:21 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.311°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.417° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 November 2091 at 22:15 in ♋ Cancer.
In 7 days on 26 November 2091 at 03:43 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
