Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 16 March 2037 at 23:36.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1820" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2037 after 10 days on 31 March 2037 at 09:53.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 460 of Meeus index or 1413 from Brown series.
Length of current 460 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 31 minutes. It is 2 hours and 44 minutes longer than next lunation 461 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠197.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠225.1°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 15 March 2037 at 01:18 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 March 2037 at 06:31 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 393 850 km (244 727 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 008 km (223 077 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 12 March 2037 at 19:15 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 March 2037 at 01:19 in ♌ Leo.

9 days after previous South standstill on 10 March 2037 at 14:37 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.688°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.814° in the next northern standstill on 25 March 2037 at 05:57 in ♋ Cancer.
After 10 days on 31 March 2037 at 09:53 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
