First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 57% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 19 November 2099 at 17:17 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1782" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2099 after 7 days on 27 November 2099 at 21:22.
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 1235 of Meeus index or 2188 from Brown series.
Length of current 1235 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 hours and 7 minutes shorter than next lunation 1236 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠27.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠49.8°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 10 November 2099 at 19:35 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 November 2099 at 17:25 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 402 337 km (250 001 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 988 km (251 648 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 8 November 2099 at 18:31 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 November 2099 at 23:18 in ♓ Pisces.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 15 November 2099 at 04:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.455°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.380° in the next northern standstill on 29 November 2099 at 16:41 in ♊ Gemini.
After 7 days on 27 November 2099 at 21:22 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
