Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 27 June 2037 at 15:20.
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 ∠18° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2037 after 23 days on 27 July 2037 at 04:15.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 19:50, this is 15 days after last perigee on 18 June 2037 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2037 at 16:48 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 404 478 km (251 331 mi) away from Earth. It is 930 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 231 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 29 June 2037 at 10:01 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 July 2037 at 15:35 in ♋ Cancer.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 28 June 2037 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.369°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.362° in the next northern standstill on 12 July 2037 at 10:57 in ♋ Cancer.
After 9 days on 13 July 2037 at 02:32 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
