Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2019 after 15 days on 12 December 2019 at 05:12.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠50.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠82.6°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 23 November 2019 at 07:54 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 December 2019 at 04:09 in ♓ Pisces.
