Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2039 after 15 days on 10 March 2039 at 16:35.
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 03:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 484 of Meeus index or 1437 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 42 minutes is the length of new lunation 484. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 485 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠83.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠120.7°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 15 February 2039 at 17:30 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 1 March 2039 at 22:42 in ♉ Taurus.

4 days after previous South standstill on 19 February 2039 at 06:19 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.002°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.115° in the next northern standstill on 5 March 2039 at 12:11 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
