Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2036 after 15 days on 3 December 2036 at 14:08.
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.
At 00:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 456 of Meeus index or 1409 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes is the length of new lunation 456. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 457 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠113°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 11 November 2036 at 18:21 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 November 2036 at 04:24 in ♒ Aquarius.

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