Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 16 October 2037 at 00:15.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2037 after 2 days on 24 October 2037 at 04:36.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 467 of Meeus index or 1420 from Brown series.
Length of current 467 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 29 minutes. It is 2 hours and 6 minutes shorter than next lunation 468 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.3°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 07:33, this is 12 days after last perigee on 8 October 2037 at 13:04 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 5 November 2037 at 22:15 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 406 008 km (252 282 mi) away from Earth. It is 600 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 701 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
5 days after its descending node on 16 October 2037 at 03:12 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 October 2037 at 16:21 in ♋ Cancer.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 15 October 2037 at 02:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.804°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.956° in the next northern standstill on 29 October 2037 at 20:04 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 24 October 2037 at 04:36 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
