Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2083 after 16 days on 25 October 2083 at 14:36.

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠299.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠325°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 1 October 2083 at 17:48 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 October 2083 at 13:59 in ♏ Scorpio.

7 days after previous North standstill on 2 October 2083 at 11:05 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.664°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.557° in the next southern standstill on 15 October 2083 at 18:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 11 October 2083 at 10:23 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
