Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2050 after 15 days on 4 July 2050 at 18:51.
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 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠104.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠137°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 9 June 2050 at 18:25 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 June 2050 at 04:29 in ♍ Virgo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 18 June 2050 at 15:49 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.513°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.482° in the next southern standstill on 3 July 2050 at 03:14 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
