Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1890" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2037 after 26 days on 22 December 2037 at 13:38.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
8 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 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 December 2037 at 21:37 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 379 166 km (235 603 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 169 km (227 527 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 17:38 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 9 December 2037 at 12:36 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 17:38 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 02:10 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.140°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.177° in its southern standstill point on 8 December 2037 at 22:32 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 6 December 2037 at 23:38 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
