Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2057 after 13 days on 19 April 2057 at 10:49.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 708 of Meeus index or 1661 from Brown series.

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°).
12 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 April 2057 at 05:48 in ♊ Gemini.

8 days after its descending node on 27 March 2057 at 19:16 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 April 2057 at 19:48 in ♋ Cancer.

8 days after previous South standstill on 28 March 2057 at 01:43 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.258°. Next 5 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.
After 13 days on 19 April 2057 at 10:49 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
