The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2035.
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 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠144.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠171°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 3 December 2035 at 08:09 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 December 2035 at 19:38 in ♊ Gemini.

12 days after previous South standstill on 2 December 2035 at 07:25 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.270°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.300° in the next northern standstill on 15 December 2035 at 23:54 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
