First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 59% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 11 April 2095 at 14:27 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2095 after 7 days on 19 April 2095 at 18:14.
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 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1178 of Meeus index or 2131 from Brown series.
Length of current 1178 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 30 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2095. It is 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1179 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
8 days after point of perigee on 4 April 2095 at 03:40 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 April 2095 at 22:45 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 395 036 km (245 464 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 156 km (252 374 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 9 April 2095 at 05:17 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 April 2095 at 19:35 in ♐ Sagittarius.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 10 April 2095 at 17:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.694°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.812° in the next southern standstill on 25 April 2095 at 11:03 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 19 April 2095 at 18:14 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
