First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 53% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 27 October 2093 at 06:18 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2093 after 6 days on 3 November 2093 at 06:46.
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 1160 of Meeus index or 2113 from Brown series.
Length of current 1160 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 24 minutes. It is 34 minutes longer than next lunation 1161 length.
Length of current synodic month is 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠284.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠314.2°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 26 October 2093 at 10:39 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 November 2093 at 23:18 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 363 455 km (225 840 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 417 km (251 293 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 26 October 2093 at 05:22 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 November 2093 at 15:46 in ♋ Cancer.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 25 October 2093 at 15:11 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.213°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.330° in the next northern standstill on 8 November 2093 at 02:08 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 3 November 2093 at 06:46 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
