Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2065 after 13 days on 22 January 2065 at 09:53.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 804 of Meeus index or 1757 from Brown series.
Length of current 804 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 47 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 minutes shorter than next lunation 805 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 New Moon true anomaly is ∠57.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠92.7°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 2 January 2065 at 20:34 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 January 2065 at 21:51 in ♈ Aries.

Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 05:38 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 22 January 2065 at 16:09 in ♋ Cancer.
At 05:38 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
3 days after previous South standstill on 5 January 2065 at 00:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.815°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.834° in the next northern standstill on 19 January 2065 at 06:26 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 22 January 2065 at 09:53 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
