Lunar disc appears visually 6.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1800" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2032 after 13 days on 18 October 2032 at 18:58.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 405 of Meeus index or 1358 from Brown series.
Length of current 405 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 19 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 406 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠215.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠248.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
4 days after point of apogee on 1 October 2032 at 03:03 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 October 2032 at 21:27 in ♓ Pisces.

10 days after previous North standstill on 25 September 2032 at 11:10 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.115°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.064° in the next southern standstill on 10 October 2032 at 03:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 18 October 2032 at 18:58 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
