Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2061 after 9 days on 4 February 2061 at 15:22.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 755 of Meeus index or 1708 from Brown series.
Length of current 755 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 15 minutes. It is 2 hours and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 756 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 31 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 32 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠265.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠299.9°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 15 January 2061 at 08:29 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 January 2061 at 14:53 in ♉ Taurus.

7 days after previous South standstill on 19 January 2061 at 10:36 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.037°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.115° in the next northern standstill on 1 February 2061 at 14:36 in ♊ Gemini.
After 9 days on 4 February 2061 at 15:22 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
