Lunar disc appears visually 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2041 after 15 days on 9 October 2041 at 18:03.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 515 of Meeus index or 1468 from Brown series.
Length of current 515 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 25 minutes. It is 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 516 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠200.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
1 day after point of apogee on 23 September 2041 at 04:59 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 October 2041 at 12:08 in ♓ Pisces.

10 days after its ascending node on 13 September 2041 at 16:25 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 September 2041 at 03:42 in ♏ Scorpio.

6 days after previous North standstill on 18 September 2041 at 03:03 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.700°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.789° in the next southern standstill on 2 October 2041 at 19:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 25 September 2041 at 08:41 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
