Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1822" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2034.

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠45.9°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 27 June 2034 at 00:19 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 July 2034 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini.

9 days after its ascending node on 23 June 2034 at 06:36 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 July 2034 at 14:33 in ♓ Pisces.

1 day after previous South standstill on 30 June 2034 at 23:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.423°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.385° in the next northern standstill on 14 July 2034 at 05:13 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
