Quarter ♐ Sagittarius
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 46% and growing larger. The 7 days young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 8 September 2092 at 20:15 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2092 after 7 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33.
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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1146 of Meeus index or 2099 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute. It is 48 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 26 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠282.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠312.2°.
Moon is at perigee at 07:44. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 25 August 2092 at 18:58 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 22 September 2092 at 14:18 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 369 784 km (229 773 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2092. It is 7 276 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 572 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after ascending node on 30 August 2092 at 21:39 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 September 2092 at 21:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 28 August 2092 at 04:01 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.103°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-20.164° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 September 2092 at 11:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 7 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33 in ♓ Pisces 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.
