Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2025 after 15 days on 7 October 2025 at 03:47.
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 3 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠127.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.8°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 10 September 2025 at 12:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 September 2025 at 09:46 in ♏ Scorpio.
