Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2085 after 14 days on 10 January 2085 at 22:42.
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 1 minute is the length of new lunation 1051. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2084. It is 34 minutes longer than next lunation 1052 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠345.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠0.9°. 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 apogee on 15 December 2084 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 December 2084 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn.

1 day after previous South standstill on 26 December 2084 at 05:43 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.910°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.917° in the next northern standstill on 8 January 2085 at 06:01 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
