Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2072 after 18 days on 25 November 2072 at 16:59.
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 900 of Meeus index or 1853 from Brown series.
Length of current 900 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 26 minutes. It is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 901 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 18 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 51 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠21.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠41.4°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 14:09, this is 15 days after last apogee on 22 October 2072 at 14:16 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 November 2072 at 08:15 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 364 640 km (226 577 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 132 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 716 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after its ascending node on 5 November 2072 at 06:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 November 2072 at 12:11 in ♓ Pisces.

6 days after previous North standstill on 31 October 2072 at 19:37 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.845°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.935° in the next southern standstill on 13 November 2072 at 14:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 10 November 2072 at 04:21 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
