Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2096 after 16 days on 5 July 2096 at 17:02.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1192 of Meeus index or 2145 from Brown series.

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.7°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 18 June 2096 at 18:27 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 June 2096 at 19:58 in ♏ Scorpio.

11 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2096 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.345°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.330° in the next northern standstill on 21 June 2096 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 20 June 2096 at 09:12 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
