Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2037 after 14 days on 31 January 2037 at 14:04.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 458 of Meeus index or 1411 from Brown series.
Length of current 458 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 20 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2037. It is 38 minutes longer than next lunation 459 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠146.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠173.2°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 3 January 2037 at 21:29 in ♌ Leo. 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 19 January 2037 at 17:43 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 403 928 km (250 989 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 033 km (252 297 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 08:20 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 31 January 2037 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo.

2 days after previous South standstill on 15 January 2037 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.586°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.575° in the next northern standstill on 29 January 2037 at 12:23 in ♋ Cancer.
After 14 days on 31 January 2037 at 14:04 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
