Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2047 after 16 days on 10 February 2047 at 14:40.
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.
At 10:39 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 581 of Meeus index or 1534 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 5 minutes is the length of new lunation 581. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 582 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 21 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 42 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠60.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠96.2°. 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 16 January 2047 at 21:10 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 February 2047 at 06:34 in ♈ Aries.

Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 05:56 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 8 February 2047 at 17:13 in ♋ Cancer.
At 05:56 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
2 days after previous South standstill on 22 January 2047 at 15:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.072°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.040° in the next northern standstill on 6 February 2047 at 02:09 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
