Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2089 after 11 days on 26 March 2089 at 09:20.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1103 of Meeus index or 2056 from Brown series.
Length of current 1103 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 22 minutes. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes longer than next lunation 1104 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠244.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠280.3°. 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 7 March 2089 at 02:34 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 March 2089 at 00:07 in ♌ Leo.

9 days after previous South standstill on 5 March 2089 at 03:03 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.545°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.481° in the next northern standstill on 19 March 2089 at 08:14 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 26 March 2089 at 09:20 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
