Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2045 after 18 days on 1 May 2045 at 05:52.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 559 of Meeus index or 1512 from Brown series.

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 28 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 35 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠238.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠274.3°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 10 April 2045 at 13:48 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 24 April 2045 at 22:26 in ♌ Leo.

Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 18:23 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 26 April 2045 at 01:40 in ♌ Leo.
At 18:23 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
5 days after previous South standstill on 7 April 2045 at 06:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.012°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.903° in the next northern standstill on 21 April 2045 at 12:18 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 17 April 2045 at 07:27 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
