Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2086 after 17 days on 26 July 2086 at 09:24.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1069 of Meeus index or 2022 from Brown series.
Length of current 1069 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 50 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 1070 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠62.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠95.5°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 2 July 2086 at 04:43 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 July 2086 at 04:25 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 377 437 km (234 528 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 547 km (251 374 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 05:01 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 22 July 2086 at 14:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
At 14:01 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.447°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.388° in its southern standstill point on 23 July 2086 at 01:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 10 July 2086 at 22:02 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
