Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2065 after 10 days on 22 March 2065 at 09:56.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 806 of Meeus index or 1759 from Brown series.
Length of current 806 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 46 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2065. It is 17 minutes longer than next lunation 807 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠129.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠159.2°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 13:11, this is 15 days after last perigee on 23 February 2065 at 13:24 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 March 2065 at 16:36 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 405 573 km (252 011 mi) away from Earth. It is 165 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 136 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
7 days after its ascending node on 3 March 2065 at 20:26 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 March 2065 at 09:40 in ♌ Leo.

10 days after previous South standstill on 28 February 2065 at 12:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.754°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.648° in the next northern standstill on 14 March 2065 at 23:55 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 22 March 2065 at 09:56 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
