Quarter ♎ Libra
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 45% and growing larger. The 7 days young Moon is in ♎ Libra.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 1 July 2093 at 23:24 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1847" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2093 after 7 days on 8 July 2093 at 17:14.
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 1156 of Meeus index or 2109 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2093. It is 13 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 2 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 16 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠167.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠190.3°.
6 days after point of apogee on 25 June 2093 at 06:06 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 8 July 2093 at 18:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 388 060 km (241 129 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 096 km (221 889 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 25 June 2093 at 19:10 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 9 July 2093 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 24 June 2093 at 15:06 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.648°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.641° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 July 2093 at 09:04 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 7 days on 8 July 2093 at 17:14 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
