* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 9 June 2095 at 23:02 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2095 after 8 days on 17 June 2095 at 22:05.
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 1180 of Meeus index or 2133 from Brown series.
Length of current 1180 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour and 38 minutes shorter than next lunation 1181 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠47.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.3°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 30 May 2095 at 08:46 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 June 2095 at 06:34 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 403 668 km (250 828 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 398 km (251 281 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 2 June 2095 at 21:43 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 June 2095 at 07:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 4 June 2095 at 12:12 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.917°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.916° in the next southern standstill on 18 June 2095 at 23:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 days on 17 June 2095 at 22:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
