Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1947".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2037.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 19 January 2037 at 17:43 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 February 2037 at 06:58 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 364 633 km (226 572 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 596 km (222 200 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 07:43 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 13 February 2037 at 14:49 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 07:43 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous North standstill on 29 January 2037 at 12:23 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.575°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.580° in the next southern standstill on 11 February 2037 at 08:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
