Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 94% and getting smaller. The 17 days old Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 29 May 2037 at 04:24.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1831" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2037 after 27 days on 27 June 2037 at 15:20.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 462 of Meeus index or 1415 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠258.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠292.3°.
6 days after point of perigee on 24 May 2037 at 14:45 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 June 2037 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 391 532 km (243 287 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 141 km (251 122 mi).
11 days after ascending node on 20 May 2037 at 03:56 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 June 2037 at 03:23 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 16:34 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-21.325°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠21.359° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 15 June 2037 at 01:37.
In 13 days on 13 June 2037 at 17:10 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
