Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1799" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2091 after 17 days on 4 April 2091 at 01:31.
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 1127 of Meeus index or 2080 from Brown series.
Length of current 1127 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 7 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2091. It is 33 minutes longer than next lunation 1128 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠137.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠165.8°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 6 March 2091 at 16:02 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 March 2091 at 17:48 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 398 373 km (247 538 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 436 km (252 548 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 5 March 2091 at 10:19 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 March 2091 at 15:30 in ♓ Pisces.

4 days after previous South standstill on 13 March 2091 at 06:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.480°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.531° in the next northern standstill on 28 March 2091 at 00:55 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 20 March 2091 at 03:45 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
