Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2037 after 14 days on 24 September 2037 at 11:32.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 18:25 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 466 of Meeus index or 1419 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 9 minutes is the length of new lunation 466. It is 1 hour and 20 minutes shorter than next lunation 467 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
12 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2037 at 02:13 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 363 779 km (226 042 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 229 km (221 972 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 6 September 2037 at 10:34 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 September 2037 at 02:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 5 September 2037 at 06:20 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.473°. Next 8 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
