Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2055 after 18 days on 11 April 2055 at 17:58.

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠170.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠194.9°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 13 March 2055 at 06:25 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 March 2055 at 15:17 in ♓ Pisces.

3 days after previous South standstill on 20 March 2055 at 22:19 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.832°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.958° in the next northern standstill on 4 April 2055 at 16:13 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 days on 28 March 2055 at 07:01 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
