Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2062 after 18 days on 23 February 2062 at 15:08.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 767 of Meeus index or 1720 from Brown series.
Length of current 767 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 18 minutes. It is 2 hours and 15 minutes longer than next lunation 768 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠201.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠232.2°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 4 February 2062 at 22:20 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 15 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 February 2062 at 23:11 in ♋ Cancer.

7 days after its descending node on 29 January 2062 at 04:17 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 February 2062 at 17:33 in ♓ Pisces.

At 08:12 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-28.542°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠28.626° in its northern standstill point on 19 February 2062 at 04:33 in ♋ Cancer.
After 4 days on 9 February 2062 at 12:11 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
