Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2057 after 14 days on 19 April 2057 at 10:49.
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, 15 hours and 1 minute is the length of new lunation 708. It is 38 minutes shorter than next lunation 709 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 46 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠117°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠148.6°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 24 March 2057 at 08:23 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 April 2057 at 05:48 in ♊ Gemini.

7 days after previous South standstill on 28 March 2057 at 01:43 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.258°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.399° in the next northern standstill on 11 April 2057 at 06:46 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
