The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2034.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.

Length of current synodic month is 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 46 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠73.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠108.6°. 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 apogee on 21 August 2034 at 12:02 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 September 2034 at 15:31 in ♈ Aries.

5 days after previous South standstill on 24 August 2034 at 17:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.219°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.184° in the next northern standstill on 6 September 2034 at 19:37 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
