Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2041 after 5 days on 13 July 2041 at 19:01.

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 513 of Meeus index or 1466 from Brown series.
Length of current 513 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 45 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 514 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠123.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠152.5°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 3 July 2041 at 06:46 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2041 at 09:14 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 391 919 km (243 527 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 651 km (224 098 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♏ Scorpio at 20:45 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 21 July 2041 at 10:19 in ♉ Taurus.

10 days after previous North standstill on 28 June 2041 at 10:46 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.286°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.311° in the next southern standstill on 12 July 2041 at 18:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 5 days on 13 July 2041 at 19:01 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
