Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1824" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2094 after 20 days on 24 September 2094 at 08:33.
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 1170 of Meeus index or 2123 from Brown series.
Length of current 1170 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 55 minutes. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 1171 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.4°. 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 26 August 2094 at 01:39 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 September 2094 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 393 021 km (244 212 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 544 km (252 615 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 19:00 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 18 September 2094 at 08:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 19:00 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
11 days after previous South standstill on 22 August 2094 at 13:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.409°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.478° in the next northern standstill on 4 September 2094 at 07:14 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 9 September 2094 at 20:31 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
