Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2032 after 14 days on 18 October 2032 at 18:58.
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.

29 days, 16 hours and 19 minutes is the length of new lunation 405. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 406 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠215.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠248.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
3 days after point of apogee on 1 October 2032 at 03:03 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 October 2032 at 21:27 in ♓ Pisces.

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