Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2044 after 15 days on 7 September 2044 at 11:24.
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 4 hours and 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠16°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠34°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 20 August 2044 at 23:01 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 September 2044 at 20:26 in ♑ Capricorn.
