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 ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 15 April 2092 at 01:54 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1823" and ∠1912".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2092 after 6 days on 22 April 2092 at 02:29.
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 1141 of Meeus index or 2094 from Brown series.
Length of current 1141 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 58 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2092. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 1142 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠140.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠167.3°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 10 April 2092 at 15:02 in ♉ Taurus. 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 23 April 2092 at 01:16 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 393 237 km (244 346 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 397 km (222 698 mi).
13 days after its descending node on 2 April 2092 at 11:01 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 17 April 2092 at 00:51 in ♌ Leo.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 13 April 2092 at 15:44 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.718°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.820° in the next southern standstill on 26 April 2092 at 12:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 22 April 2092 at 02:29 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
