Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1806" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2071 after 1 day on 9 October 2071 at 05:23.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 887 of Meeus index or 1840 from Brown series.
Length of current 887 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes. It is 2 hours and 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 888 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠67.5°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 2 October 2071 at 23:37 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 October 2071 at 05:18 in ♌ Leo.

6 days after previous South standstill on 30 September 2071 at 13:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.146°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.195° in the next northern standstill on 14 October 2071 at 18:01 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 9 October 2071 at 05:23 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
