Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 11 August 2037 at 10:41.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2037 after 10 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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 465 of Meeus index or 1418 from Brown series.
Length of current 465 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2037. It is 25 minutes shorter than next lunation 466 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠338.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354.5°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 12 August 2037 at 17:37 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 August 2037 at 00:28 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 365 089 km (226 856 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 214 km (252 410 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 10 August 2037 at 01:40 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 August 2037 at 23:10 in ♑ Capricorn.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2037 at 21:01 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.369°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.390° in the next southern standstill on 21 August 2037 at 14:16 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 25 August 2037 at 19:09 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
