Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2022 after 15 days on 13 July 2022 at 18:37.
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.
At 11:30 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 277 of Meeus index or 1230 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 22 minutes is the length of new lunation 277. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2022. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 278 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠155.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠178.8°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 14 June 2022 at 23:21 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 June 2022 at 06:08 in ♋ Cancer.

3 days after its ascending node on 25 June 2022 at 07:10 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 July 2022 at 17:28 in ♏ Scorpio.

13 days after previous South standstill on 15 June 2022 at 10:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.924°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.900° in the next northern standstill on 29 June 2022 at 04:06 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
