Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1887" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2090 after 11 days on 7 November 2090 at 09:05.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1123 of Meeus index or 2076 from Brown series.
Length of current 1123 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours and 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 1124 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠19.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠39°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 21 October 2090 at 22:03 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 November 2090 at 02:54 in ♓ Pisces.

6 days 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 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 November 2090 at 17:56 in ♓ Pisces.

11 days after previous North standstill on 14 October 2090 at 20:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.312°. Next day 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 11 days on 7 November 2090 at 09:05 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
