Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2035 after 15 days on 17 September 2035 at 14:23.
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 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠75°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 30 August 2035 at 02:28 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 September 2035 at 23:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.

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