Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1942" and ∠1915".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2034.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.

Length of current 429 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 25 minutes shorter than next lunation 430 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠108.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠141.4°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 18 September 2034 at 07:04 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 30 September 2034 at 04:10 in ♉ Taurus.

1 day after its descending node on 27 September 2034 at 08:33 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 October 2034 at 06:34 in ♍ Virgo.

7 days after previous South standstill on 21 September 2034 at 02:17 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.177°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.200° in the next northern standstill on 4 October 2034 at 01:15 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
