Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2057 after 14 days on 12 October 2057 at 15:01.

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 44 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠291.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠318.8°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 21 September 2057 at 02:28 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 October 2057 at 19:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.

6 days after previous North standstill on 21 September 2057 at 22:51 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.051°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.184° in the next southern standstill on 5 October 2057 at 10:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
