Lunar disc appears visually 5.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1789" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2092 after 15 days on 17 August 2092 at 09:22.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1144 of Meeus index or 2097 from Brown series.
Length of current 1144 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than next lunation 1145 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 3 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠215.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠246.7°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 29 July 2092 at 00:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 August 2092 at 17:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 400 564 km (248 899 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 986 km (228 035 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 20 July 2092 at 04:19 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 August 2092 at 13:51 in ♌ Leo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 31 July 2092 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.082°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.084° in the next southern standstill on 14 August 2092 at 05:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 3 August 2092 at 09:54 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
