Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2073 after 13 days on 19 July 2073 at 05:04.
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.

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠284.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠313.1°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 28 June 2073 at 01:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 July 2073 at 07:01 in ♎ Libra.

1 day after previous North standstill on 4 July 2073 at 22:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.610°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.591° in the next southern standstill on 17 July 2073 at 20:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
