Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2045 after 16 days on 26 September 2045 at 06:11.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 564 of Meeus index or 1517 from Brown series.

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 13 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 ∠16.2°. 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°).
14 days after point of apogee on 26 August 2045 at 04:13 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2045 at 02:20 in ♍ Virgo.

4 days after previous North standstill on 5 September 2045 at 06:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.764°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.716° in the next southern standstill on 17 September 2045 at 22:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 11 September 2045 at 01:27 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
