Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2058 after 15 days on 8 April 2058 at 22:55.
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.

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠50.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠82.2°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 21 March 2058 at 01:53 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 April 2058 at 23:36 in ♋ Cancer.

5 days after previous South standstill on 18 March 2058 at 14:46 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.900°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.018° in the next northern standstill on 31 March 2058 at 23:15 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
