Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2026 after 16 days on 24 November 2026 at 14:53.
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.

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠94.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠129.9°. 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 28 October 2026 at 18:01 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 November 2026 at 17:50 in ♑ Capricorn.
