Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2044 after 13 days on 10 July 2044 at 06:22.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 550 of Meeus index or 1503 from Brown series.
Length of current 550 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 46 minutes. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter than next lunation 551 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠0.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠16°. 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 25 June 2044 at 09:26 in ♋ Cancer. 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 8 July 2044 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.

8 days after its ascending node on 17 June 2044 at 14:53 in ♓ Pisces, 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 30 June 2044 at 02:39 in ♍ Virgo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 24 June 2044 at 23:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.296°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.308° in the next southern standstill on 8 July 2044 at 11:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 10 July 2044 at 06:22 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
