Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2060 after 20 days on 13 July 2060 at 15:08.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 747 of Meeus index or 1700 from Brown series.
Length of current 747 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 748 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠54.1°. 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°).
14 days after point of apogee on 8 June 2060 at 19:26 in ♎ Libra. 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 24 June 2060 at 12:41 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 363 447 km (225 835 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 989 km (228 036 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 21:23 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 7 July 2060 at 12:29 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 21:23 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
8 days after previous South standstill on 15 June 2060 at 02:38 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.634°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.624° in the next northern standstill on 28 June 2060 at 00:46 in ♋ Cancer.
After 4 days on 28 June 2060 at 02:58 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
