Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 5 June 2037 at 22:49.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1852" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2037 after 15 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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 462 of Meeus index or 1415 from Brown series.
Length of current 462 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than next lunation 463 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠258.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠292.3°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 6 June 2037 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2037 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 387 072 km (240 515 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 923 km (229 238 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 2 June 2037 at 03:23 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 June 2037 at 07:41 in ♋ Cancer.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 31 May 2037 at 16:34 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.325°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.359° in the next northern standstill on 15 June 2037 at 01:37 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 13 June 2037 at 17:10 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
