Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 13 June 2037 at 17:10.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1941" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2037 after 11 days on 27 June 2037 at 15:20.
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 463 of Meeus index or 1416 from Brown series.
Length of current 463 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 464 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠292.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠318.7°. 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°).
10 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2037 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 369 201 km (229 411 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 923 km (229 238 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 07:41 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 29 June 2037 at 10:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 07:41 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous North standstill on 15 June 2037 at 01:37 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.359°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.369° in the next southern standstill on 28 June 2037 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 27 June 2037 at 15:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
