Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2079 after 15 days on 10 October 2079 at 17:23.
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 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠80.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠116.3°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 18 September 2079 at 08:26 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 October 2079 at 03:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
