Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1920".
The Full Moon this days is the Worm of March 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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 30 March 2037 at 06:31 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 April 2037 at 13:04 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 366 372 km (227 653 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 679 km (252 077 mi).
4 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 8 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 beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 25 March 2037 at 05:57 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.814°. Next 6 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.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
