Lunar disc appears visually 8.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1780" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2054 after 15 days on 23 March 2054 at 17:21.
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 669 of Meeus index or 1622 from Brown series.
Length of current 669 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 670 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠193.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠220.6°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 5 March 2054 at 16:18 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 March 2054 at 14:11 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 402 703 km (250 228 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 830 km (225 452 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 13:36 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 21 March 2054 at 22:53 in ♍ Virgo.

5 days after previous South standstill on 3 March 2054 at 09:21 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.648°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.685° in the next northern standstill on 17 March 2054 at 17:30 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 9 March 2054 at 12:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
