Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2082 after 20 days on 10 July 2082 at 03:10.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1019 of Meeus index or 1972 from Brown series.
Length of current 1019 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 29 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes longer than next lunation 1020 length.
Length of current synodic month is 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠231.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠265.3°. 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 21:53, this is 11 days after last perigee on 8 June 2082 at 00:19 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 4 July 2082 at 20:11 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 404 483 km (251 334 mi) away from Earth. It is 925 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 226 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
3 days after its ascending node on 15 June 2082 at 21:23 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 30 June 2082 at 03:43 in ♌ Leo.

8 days after previous South standstill on 11 June 2082 at 02:29 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.828°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.827° in the next northern standstill on 25 June 2082 at 10:57 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 26 June 2082 at 05:16 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
