Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2090 after 16 days on 7 November 2090 at 09:05.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
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 1122 of Meeus index or 2075 from Brown series.
Length of current 1122 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 6 minutes. It is 1 hour and 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 1123 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠19.7°. 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 perigee on this date at 22:03, this is 15 days after last apogee on 6 October 2090 at 16:44 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 3 November 2090 at 02:54 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 359 372 km (223 303 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 136 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 984 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 20 October 2090 at 10:45 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 November 2090 at 17:56 in ♓ Pisces.

6 days after previous North standstill on 14 October 2090 at 20:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.312°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.382° in the next southern standstill on 27 October 2090 at 11:28 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 23 October 2090 at 02:09 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
