Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2033 after 17 days on 14 May 2033 at 10:43.
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 411 of Meeus index or 1364 from Brown series.
Length of current 411 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 55 minutes. It is 5 minutes longer than next lunation 412 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠8.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.1°. 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°).
14 days after point of apogee on 12 April 2033 at 02:26 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 April 2033 at 14:44 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 363 302 km (225 745 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 572 km (224 049 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 14 April 2033 at 11:28 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 April 2033 at 21:57 in ♈ Aries.

6 days after previous South standstill on 19 April 2033 at 14:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.596°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.619° in the next northern standstill on 2 May 2033 at 06:31 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 29 April 2033 at 02:46 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
