Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2051 after 15 days on 23 July 2051 at 16:36.
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.

29 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes is the length of new lunation 637. It is 2 hours and 32 minutes shorter than next lunation 638 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠70.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠104.1°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 2 July 2051 at 20:59 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 July 2051 at 16:49 in ♎ Libra.

2 days after previous North standstill on 6 July 2051 at 11:58 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.198°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.133° in the next southern standstill on 20 July 2051 at 20:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
