Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 5 July 2037 at 16:00.
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 ∠19° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1818" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2037 after 18 days on 27 July 2037 at 04:15.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 3 July 2037 at 19:50 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2037 at 16:48 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 394 345 km (245 035 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 330 km (226 384 mi).
9 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 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 July 2037 at 15:35 in ♋ Cancer.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 28 June 2037 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.369°. Next 3 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 4 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.
