Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2095 after 23 days on 15 August 2095 at 17:13.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1181 of Meeus index or 2134 from Brown series.
Length of current 1181 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 34 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes shorter than next lunation 1182 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠110.9°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 21 July 2095 at 04:21 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 August 2095 at 19:19 in ♎ Libra.

8 days after its descending node on 14 July 2095 at 15:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 July 2095 at 11:36 in ♊ Gemini.

7 days after previous South standstill on 16 July 2095 at 07:31 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.908°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.923° in the next northern standstill on 29 July 2095 at 04:07 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 31 July 2095 at 07:29 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
