Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2076 after 14 days on 17 June 2076 at 02:38.
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 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 56 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠114.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠145.4°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 22 May 2076 at 07:47 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 June 2076 at 01:18 in ♌ Leo.

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
