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.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2037 after 5 days on 22 November 2037 at 21:35.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 468 of Meeus index or 1421 from Brown series.
Length of current 468 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 35 minutes. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 469 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 9 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠26.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠48°. 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 21:05, this is 11 days after last perigee on 5 November 2037 at 22:15 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 3 December 2037 at 21:37 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 405 184 km (251 770 mi) away from Earth. It is 224 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 525 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
5 days after its descending node on 12 November 2037 at 05:59 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 26 November 2037 at 17:38 in ♋ Cancer.

6 days after previous South standstill on 11 November 2037 at 11:53 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.049°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.140° in the next northern standstill on 26 November 2037 at 02:10 in ♋ Cancer.
After 5 days on 22 November 2037 at 21:35 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
