Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 20 June 2037 at 13:45.
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 ∠24° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1911" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2037 after 3 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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 18 June 2037 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 July 2037 at 19:50 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 374 991 km (233 009 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 478 km (251 331 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 16 June 2037 at 07:41 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 June 2037 at 10:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 15 June 2037 at 01:37 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.359°. Next 3 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 3 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.
