Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1901" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2033 after 16 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 408 of Meeus index or 1361 from Brown series.
Length of current 408 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than next lunation 409 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠315.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠336.6°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 20 January 2033 at 07:04 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 February 2033 at 07:27 in ♓ Pisces.

5 days after its ascending node on 22 January 2033 at 23:41 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 February 2033 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries.

1 day after previous South standstill on 27 January 2033 at 14:55 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.973°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.889° in the next northern standstill on 9 February 2033 at 07:09 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 30 January 2033 at 22:00 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
