Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2099 after 15 days on 4 May 2099 at 17:58.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1227 of Meeus index or 2180 from Brown series.
Length of current 1227 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 43 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes longer than next lunation 1228 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 4 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠199.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠227.5°. 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 16 April 2099 at 08:34 in ♓ Pisces. 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 2 May 2099 at 05:55 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 401 767 km (249 646 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 037 km (226 202 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 18 April 2099 at 13:19 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 May 2099 at 00:59 in ♎ Libra.

8 days after previous South standstill on 10 April 2099 at 17:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.656°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.599° in the next northern standstill on 25 April 2099 at 08:16 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 20 April 2099 at 15:30 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
