Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1895" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2037 after 17 days on 25 August 2037 at 19:09.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 464 of Meeus index or 1417 from Brown series.
Length of current 464 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 10 minutes. It is 26 minutes longer than next lunation 465 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠318.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠338.4°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 31 July 2037 at 12:33 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 August 2037 at 17:37 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 378 199 km (235 002 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 796 km (223 567 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 26 July 2037 at 17:23 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 August 2037 at 01:40 in ♋ Cancer.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 21:01 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠21.369°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-21.390° in its southern standstill point on 21 August 2037 at 14:16 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 11 August 2037 at 10:41 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
