Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2043 after 16 days on 20 August 2043 at 15:04.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 17:51 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 538 of Meeus index or 1491 from Brown series.

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠33.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠57.1°. 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 1 August 2043 at 05:13 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 August 2043 at 08:32 in ♏ Scorpio.

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
