Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1916" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2064 after 17 days on 25 September 2064 at 13:38.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 799 of Meeus index or 1752 from Brown series.
Length of current 799 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2064. It is 1 minute shorter than next lunation 800 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠325.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠344°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 30 August 2064 at 14:46 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 September 2064 at 00:51 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 374 017 km (232 403 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 598 km (222 822 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 19:25 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 September 2064 at 13:35 in ♒ Aquarius.

3 days after previous North standstill on 4 September 2064 at 22:06 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.341°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.279° in the next southern standstill on 17 September 2064 at 12:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 11 September 2064 at 02:11 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
