Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2037 after 1 day 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
14 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 March 2037 at 06:31 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 363 338 km (225 768 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 008 km (223 077 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 27 March 2037 at 01:19 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 April 2037 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn.

4 days after previous North standstill on 25 March 2037 at 05:57 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.814°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.915° in the next southern standstill on 6 April 2037 at 21:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day 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.
