Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2027 after 15 days on 15 October 2027 at 13:47.
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 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠36.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠61.7°. 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 27 September 2027 at 20:12 in ♌ Leo. 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 9 October 2027 at 15:47 in ♒ Aquarius.
