Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2037 after 14 days on 2 March 2037 at 00:28.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 04:54 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 459 of Meeus index or 1412 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes is the length of new lunation 459. It is 2 hours and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 460 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠173.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠197.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 23:45, this is 14 days after last perigee on 1 February 2037 at 06:58 in ♌ Leo.

4 days after previous South standstill on 11 February 2037 at 08:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.580°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.631° in the next northern standstill on 25 February 2037 at 22:25 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
