Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 14 November 2037 at 17:59.
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 first ∠1° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2037 after 2 days on 22 November 2037 at 21:35.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
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 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 17 November 2037 at 21:05 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 December 2037 at 21:37 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 402 988 km (250 405 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 169 km (227 527 mi).
8 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 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 November 2037 at 17:38 in ♋ Cancer.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 11 November 2037 at 11:53 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.049°. Next 5 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 2 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.
