Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2057 after 17 days on 13 September 2057 at 02:53.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 712 of Meeus index or 1665 from Brown series.
Length of current 712 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 23 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes longer than next lunation 713 length.
Length of current synodic month is 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠222.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠255.9°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 24 August 2057 at 07:38 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 September 2057 at 19:57 in ♑ Capricorn.

1 day after previous North standstill on 25 August 2057 at 15:28 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.822°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.933° in the next southern standstill on 8 September 2057 at 05:28 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 30 August 2057 at 03:54 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
