Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1864" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2036 after 13 days on 4 November 2036 at 00:44.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 455 of Meeus index or 1408 from Brown series.
Length of current 455 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 24 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 456 length.
Length of current synodic month is 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 16 October 2036 at 12:04 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 October 2036 at 07:33 in ♒ Aquarius.

6 days after its ascending node on 14 October 2036 at 12:21 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 October 2036 at 20:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

9 days after previous North standstill on 12 October 2036 at 00:39 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.162°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.273° in the next southern standstill on 25 October 2036 at 00:51 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 4 November 2036 at 00:44 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
