Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2054 after 14 days on 22 February 2054 at 06:46.
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 5 hours and 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠193.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠220.6°. 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 6 February 2054 at 06:08 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 21 February 2054 at 07:51 in ♌ Leo.

12 days after its ascending node on 26 January 2054 at 01:32 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 February 2054 at 07:02 in ♓ Pisces.

3 days after previous South standstill on 4 February 2054 at 02:34 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.688°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.654° in the next northern standstill on 18 February 2054 at 10:09 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
