Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1912".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2032 after 10 days on 25 April 2032 at 15:10.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 399 of Meeus index or 1352 from Brown series.
Length of current 399 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour shorter than next lunation 400 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠44.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠73.2°. 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 perigee on 7 April 2032 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 April 2032 at 03:02 in ♌ Leo.

4 days after its descending node on 11 April 2032 at 11:00 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 April 2032 at 21:52 in ♏ Scorpio.

1 day after previous North standstill on 14 April 2032 at 13:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.650°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.640° in the next southern standstill on 28 April 2032 at 22:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 10 days on 25 April 2032 at 15:10 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
