Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2035 after 22 days on 15 November 2035 at 13:49.
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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 442 of Meeus index or 1395 from Brown series.
Length of current 442 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes. It is 2 hours and 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 443 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠75°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠110.7°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 20 October 2035 at 19:38 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 November 2035 at 15:01 in ♑ Capricorn.

2 days after previous North standstill on 22 October 2035 at 04:59 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.978°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.089° in the next southern standstill on 4 November 2035 at 23:10 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 31 October 2035 at 02:59 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
