Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1856" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2097 after 17 days on 26 April 2097 at 12:09.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1202 of Meeus index or 2155 from Brown series.
Length of current 1202 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 30 minutes. It is 2 hours and 16 minutes longer than next lunation 1203 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠293.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠319.8°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 3 April 2097 at 02:31 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 April 2097 at 21:49 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 386 264 km (240 013 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 251 km (226 335 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 30 March 2097 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 April 2097 at 17:20 in ♉ Taurus.

5 days after previous South standstill on 4 April 2097 at 05:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.474°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.513° in the next northern standstill on 17 April 2097 at 11:44 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 12 April 2097 at 09:26 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
