Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2041 after 13 days on 9 October 2041 at 18:03.

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 516 of Meeus index or 1469 from Brown series.

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠200.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠229.1°. 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 23 September 2041 at 04:59 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 October 2041 at 12:08 in ♓ Pisces.

8 days after previous North standstill on 18 September 2041 at 03:03 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.700°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.789° in the next southern standstill on 2 October 2041 at 19:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 9 October 2041 at 18:03 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
