Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2025 after 14 days on 9 August 2025 at 07:55.
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 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠60.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠93°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 20 July 2025 at 13:52 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 August 2025 at 20:37 in ♏ Scorpio.

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
