Lunar disc appears visually 8.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2091 after 13 days on 4 April 2091 at 01:31.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1128 of Meeus index or 2081 from Brown series.
Length of current 1128 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes longer than next lunation 1129 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠165.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠189.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 17:48, this is 15 days after last perigee on 6 March 2091 at 16:02 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 4 April 2091 at 03:26 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 406 436 km (252 548 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 028 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 273 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
2 days after its descending node on 18 March 2091 at 15:30 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 April 2091 at 21:03 in ♍ Virgo.

8 days after previous South standstill on 13 March 2091 at 06:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.480°. Next 6 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 13 days on 4 April 2091 at 01:31 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
