Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 2 September 2037 at 22:03.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1927" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2037 after 17 days on 24 September 2037 at 11:32.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 28 August 2037 at 00:28 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2037 at 02:13 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 371 987 km (231 142 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 229 km (221 972 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 10:34 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 19 September 2037 at 02:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 10:34 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous North standstill on 5 September 2037 at 06:20 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.473°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.547° in the next southern standstill on 17 September 2037 at 19:36 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 9 September 2037 at 18:25 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
