Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2075 after 19 days on 24 September 2075 at 10:31.
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 935 of Meeus index or 1888 from Brown series.
Length of current 935 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 936 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠218.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠251.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 19:44, this is 11 days after last perigee on 23 August 2075 at 22:14 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 20 September 2075 at 11:42 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 404 711 km (251 476 mi) away from Earth. It is 697 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 998 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after its descending node on 22 August 2075 at 16:33 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 September 2075 at 03:09 in ♋ Cancer.

12 days after previous South standstill on 22 August 2075 at 13:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.754°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.823° in the next northern standstill on 5 September 2075 at 01:11 in ♋ Cancer.
After 5 days on 10 September 2075 at 11:02 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
