Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2037 after 15 days on 22 December 2037 at 13:38.
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 19 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 44 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠48°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠79.2°. 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 3 December 2037 at 21:37 in ♎ Libra. 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 15 December 2037 at 16:34 in ♓ Pisces.

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