Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1942" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2037 after 3 days on 2 March 2037 at 00:28.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 459 of Meeus index or 1412 from Brown series.
Length of current 459 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 15 February 2037 at 23:45 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 March 2037 at 19:48 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 369 055 km (229 320 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 710 km (221 649 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 13 February 2037 at 14:49 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 27 February 2037 at 18:35 in ♌ Leo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 25 February 2037 at 22:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.631°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.688° in the next southern standstill on 10 March 2037 at 14:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 2 March 2037 at 00:28 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
