Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1906".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2090.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 29 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.8°. 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 14:56, this is 14 days after last perigee on 26 August 2090 at 01:13 in ♍ Virgo.

6 days after previous South standstill on 2 September 2090 at 19:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.232°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.226° in the next northern standstill on 17 September 2090 at 14:20 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
