Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2089 after 17 days on 24 February 2089 at 22:05.
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 1101 of Meeus index or 2054 from Brown series.
Length of current 1101 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 58 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2089. It is 1 hour and 50 minutes longer than next lunation 1102 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠185.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠211.9°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 10:18, this is 12 days after last perigee on 25 January 2089 at 19:36 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 February 2089 at 04:43 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 406 252 km (252 433 mi) away from Earth. It is 844 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 457 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
6 days after its ascending node on 31 January 2089 at 14:33 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 February 2089 at 05:13 in ♈ Aries.

1 day after previous South standstill on 5 February 2089 at 19:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.740°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.626° in the next northern standstill on 20 February 2089 at 01:51 in ♊ Gemini.
After 3 days on 10 February 2089 at 15:16 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
