Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2047 after 14 days on 9 May 2047 at 18:24.

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠185.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠210.1°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 24 April 2047 at 13:11 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 May 2047 at 02:43 in ♏ Scorpio.

11 days after previous South standstill on 14 April 2047 at 10:31 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.536°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.418° in the next northern standstill on 28 April 2047 at 23:17 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
