Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1923".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2092 after 26 days on 22 April 2092 at 02:29.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 25 March 2092 at 19:17 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 15 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 April 2092 at 15:02 in ♉ Taurus.

5 days after its ascending node on 20 March 2092 at 18:51 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 April 2092 at 11:01 in ♒ Aquarius.

9 days after previous North standstill on 17 March 2092 at 07:54 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.509°. Next 3 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 11 days on 6 April 2092 at 21:41 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
