Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2065 after 17 days on 14 September 2065 at 16:05.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 811 of Meeus index or 1764 from Brown series.

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠270.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠303.1°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 23 August 2065 at 10:35 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 September 2065 at 13:22 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 393 357 km (244 421 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 552 km (228 386 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 12:53 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 10 September 2065 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

2 days after previous North standstill on 25 August 2065 at 15:06 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.110°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.026° in the next southern standstill on 7 September 2065 at 20:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 days on 31 August 2065 at 16:39 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
