Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2041 after 14 days on 12 August 2041 at 02:04.
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 2 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠152.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠176.4°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 15 July 2041 at 09:14 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 July 2041 at 20:07 in ♍ Virgo.

2 days after previous North standstill on 25 July 2041 at 16:19 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.332°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.426° in the next southern standstill on 9 August 2041 at 04:03 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
