Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2025 after 15 days on 10 July 2025 at 20:37.
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.

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠36.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠60.5°. 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 23 June 2025 at 04:43 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 July 2025 at 02:29 in ♏ Scorpio.
