Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2077 after 14 days on 29 November 2077 at 21:43.
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.

This lunation true anomaly is ∠222.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠258.6°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 11 November 2077 at 17:19 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2077 at 16:38 in ♈ Aries.
