Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2075 after 19 days on 1 April 2075 at 08:45.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 929 of Meeus index or 1882 from Brown series.
Length of current 929 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 930 length.
Length of current synodic month is equal to the mean length of synodic month. It is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the 21st century shortest and 7 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the 21st century longest synodic month.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.5°. 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 10 March 2075 at 13:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 March 2075 at 23:11 in ♊ Gemini.

1 day after previous South standstill on 11 March 2075 at 10:20 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.019°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.138° in the next northern standstill on 25 March 2075 at 08:07 in ♋ Cancer.
After 4 days on 16 March 2075 at 19:25 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
