Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1940" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2041 after 17 days on 16 May 2041 at 00:52.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 510 of Meeus index or 1463 from Brown series.
Length of current 510 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 17 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 511 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠32.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠56.2°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 26 April 2041 at 16:51 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 May 2041 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 369 522 km (229 610 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 308 km (251 225 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 17 April 2041 at 22:27 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 April 2041 at 20:05 in ♉ Taurus.

6 days after previous South standstill on 21 April 2041 at 19:43 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.368°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.379° in the next northern standstill on 4 May 2041 at 19:15 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 30 April 2041 at 11:46 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
