Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2081 after 15 days on 16 November 2081 at 13:19.
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, 11 hours and 32 minutes is the length of new lunation 1012. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes shorter than next lunation 1013 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠29.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠52.5°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 30 October 2081 at 07:55 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 November 2081 at 04:54 in ♓ Pisces.
