Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2077 after 9 days on 4 August 2077 at 09:46.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 959 of Meeus index or 1912 from Brown series.
Length of current 959 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter than next lunation 960 length.
Length of current synodic month is 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠115.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠146°. 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 apogee on this date at 07:09, this is 15 days after last perigee on 9 July 2077 at 14:18 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 6 August 2077 at 07:02 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 405 036 km (251 678 mi) away from Earth. It is 372 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 673 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
9 days after its ascending node on 16 July 2077 at 02:42 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 30 July 2077 at 13:27 in ♏ Scorpio.

6 days after previous North standstill on 18 July 2077 at 14:18 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.808°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.863° in the next southern standstill on 2 August 2077 at 02:04 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 9 days on 4 August 2077 at 09:46 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
