Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2088 after 15 days on 28 November 2088 at 14:18.
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.

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠131.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠160.8°. 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 1 November 2088 at 14:54 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 17 November 2088 at 14:57 in ♑ Capricorn.
