First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 51% and growing larger. The 7 days young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 6 November 2092 at 10:40 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1930" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2092 after 7 days on 14 November 2092 at 03:04.
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 1148 of Meeus index or 2101 from Brown series.
Length of current 1148 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 7 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2092. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 1149 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠334°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠350.8°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 1 November 2092 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 November 2092 at 00:09 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 371 373 km (230 760 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 114 km (252 348 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 00:18 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 20 November 2092 at 09:44 in ♌ Leo.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 3 November 2092 at 23:31 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.608°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.732° in the next northern standstill on 18 November 2092 at 03:46 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 14 November 2092 at 03:04 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
