Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2062 after 11 days on 16 November 2062 at 20:48.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 777 of Meeus index or 1730 from Brown series.
Length of current 777 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 28 minutes. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 778 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠86.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠123°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 24 October 2062 at 12:04 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 November 2062 at 23:42 in ♑ Capricorn.

At 05:18 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-28.465°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠28.390° in its northern standstill point on 19 November 2062 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 16 November 2062 at 20:48 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
