First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 60% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 25 November 2093 at 13:54 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1946" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2093 after 6 days on 2 December 2093 at 22:24.
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 1161 of Meeus index or 2114 from Brown series.
Length of current 1161 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 50 minutes. It is 32 minutes longer than next lunation 1162 length.
Length of current synodic month is 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠314.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠335.6°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 21 November 2093 at 17:56 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 December 2093 at 19:07 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 368 416 km (228 923 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 269 km (251 822 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 22 November 2093 at 07:46 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 December 2093 at 20:16 in ♋ Cancer.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 21 November 2093 at 22:15 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.406°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.462° in the next northern standstill on 5 December 2093 at 10:39 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 2 December 2093 at 22:24 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
