Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2079 after 14 days on 9 November 2079 at 04:34.
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.

29 days, 17 hours and 10 minutes is the length of new lunation 987. It is 1 hour and 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 988 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 26 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠116.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠148.4°. 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 14 October 2079 at 02:01 in ♊ Gemini. 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 29 October 2079 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
