Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2064 after 15 days on 23 December 2064 at 18:14.
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.

29 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes is the length of new lunation 803. It is 2 hours and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 804 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠33°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠57.9°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 6 December 2064 at 06:12 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 December 2064 at 01:06 in ♈ Aries.

9 days after its descending node on 29 November 2064 at 05:50 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 December 2064 at 21:17 in ♒ Aquarius.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 15:21 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.787°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2064. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.786° in its northern standstill point on 22 December 2064 at 22:07 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
