Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2073 after 15 days on 14 December 2073 at 13:49.
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 05:12 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 914 of Meeus index or 1867 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes is the length of new lunation 914. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes shorter than next lunation 915 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠22.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠43.1°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 27 November 2073 at 21:03 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 December 2073 at 22:16 in ♈ Aries.

8 days after its ascending node on 21 November 2073 at 10:04 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 December 2073 at 22:40 in ♒ Aquarius.

10 days after previous North standstill on 18 November 2073 at 15:10 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.145°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.206° in the next southern standstill on 1 December 2073 at 10:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
