Lunar disc appears visually 7.4% 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 18 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 4 September 2075 at 19:44 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 September 2075 at 11:42 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 405 401 km (251 905 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 790 km (228 534 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 03:09 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 18 September 2075 at 19:47 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 03:09 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 01:11 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.823°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.947° in its southern standstill point on 18 September 2075 at 20:04 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 4 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.
