Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2037 after 14 days on 29 April 2037 at 18:54.

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠225.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠258.7°. 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 11 April 2037 at 13:04 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 April 2037 at 09:43 in ♎ Libra.

8 days after previous South standstill on 6 April 2037 at 21:45 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.915°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.064° in the next northern standstill on 21 April 2037 at 11:52 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
