Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2029 after 16 days on 30 January 2029 at 06:03.

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 358 of Meeus index or 1311 from Brown series.

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠63.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠99.9°. 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 5 January 2029 at 04:16 in ♍ Virgo. 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 20 January 2029 at 18:08 in ♈ Aries.

1 day after previous South standstill on 12 January 2029 at 00:15 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.199°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.172° in the next northern standstill on 26 January 2029 at 12:31 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 14 January 2029 at 17:24 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
