Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1808" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2092 after 20 days on 14 November 2092 at 03:04.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1147 of Meeus index or 2100 from Brown series.
Length of current 1147 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 13 minutes. It is 6 minutes longer than next lunation 1148 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠312.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠334°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 20 October 2092 at 09:17 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 November 2092 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 08:18 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 6 November 2092 at 00:18 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 08:18 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
2 days after previous North standstill on 21 October 2092 at 20:05 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.498°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.608° in the next southern standstill on 3 November 2092 at 23:31 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 30 October 2092 at 19:28 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
