Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2054 after 15 days on 17 September 2054 at 01:41.
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 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠352.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠7.4°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 14:49, this is 14 days after last apogee on 18 August 2054 at 10:18 in ♒ Aquarius.

3 days after previous North standstill on 28 August 2054 at 21:36 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.122°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.139° in the next southern standstill on 10 September 2054 at 15:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
