Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2058 after 15 days on 31 October 2058 at 12:54.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 726 of Meeus index or 1679 from Brown series.
Length of current 726 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 47 minutes. It is 43 minutes longer than next lunation 727 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠223°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠257.8°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 11 October 2058 at 14:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 October 2058 at 04:18 in ♓ Pisces.

10 days after its ascending node on 6 October 2058 at 07:21 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 October 2058 at 17:23 in ♏ Scorpio.

7 days after previous North standstill on 8 October 2058 at 22:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.830°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.927° in the next southern standstill on 23 October 2058 at 03:57 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 17 October 2058 at 13:05 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
