Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2080 after 18 days on 28 October 2080 at 16:13.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 998 of Meeus index or 1951 from Brown series.
Length of current 998 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 999 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 25 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 44 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠29.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠51.5°. 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 9 October 2080 at 17:45 in ♌ Leo. 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 21 October 2080 at 15:25 in ♒ Aquarius.

11 days after its ascending node on 28 September 2080 at 19:44 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 October 2080 at 21:44 in ♍ Virgo.

5 days after previous North standstill on 5 October 2080 at 09:53 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.682°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.649° in the next southern standstill on 18 October 2080 at 10:47 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 13 October 2080 at 02:44 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
