Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2055 after 14 days on 11 May 2055 at 02:31.

Length of current synodic month is 56 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 7 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠221.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠254.3°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 23 April 2055 at 01:56 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 May 2055 at 21:10 in ♎ Libra.

9 days after previous South standstill on 17 April 2055 at 06:08 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.056°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.193° in the next northern standstill on 1 May 2055 at 22:10 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
