Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2091 after 15 days on 5 March 2091 at 15:59.
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 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠137.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠165.8°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 6 February 2091 at 09:12 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 February 2091 at 08:37 in ♈ Aries.
