Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1859" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2092 after 3 days on 23 March 2092 at 17:15.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1140 of Meeus index or 2093 from Brown series.
Length of current 1140 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 45 minutes. It is 13 minutes shorter than next lunation 1141 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠106.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠140.8°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 13 March 2092 at 23:06 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 March 2092 at 19:17 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 385 589 km (239 594 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 589 km (225 302 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 18:51 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 2 April 2092 at 11:01 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 18:51 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
3 days after previous North standstill on 17 March 2092 at 07:54 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.509°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.597° in the next southern standstill on 30 March 2092 at 05:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 23 March 2092 at 17:15 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
