Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2071 after 14 days on 7 December 2071 at 06:57.
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.
At 18:59 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 889 of Meeus index or 1842 from Brown series.
29 days, 16 hours and 47 minutes is the length of new lunation 889. It is 2 hours and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 890 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠102.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠138.1°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 12 November 2071 at 01:07 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 November 2071 at 16:12 in ♒ Aquarius.

5 days after its ascending node on 17 November 2071 at 01:15 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 December 2071 at 07:18 in ♓ Pisces.

11 days after previous North standstill on 11 November 2071 at 00:34 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.336°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.413° in the next southern standstill on 24 November 2071 at 07:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
