Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2091 after 13 days on 27 September 2091 at 15:56.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1134 of Meeus index or 2087 from Brown series.
Length of current 1134 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 54 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2091. It is 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 1135 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠332.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠349.5°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 3 September 2091 at 01:49 in ♉ Taurus. 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 15 September 2091 at 01:40 in ♎ Libra.

2 days after its ascending node on 12 September 2091 at 03:32 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 25 September 2091 at 00:30 in ♓ Pisces.

6 days after previous North standstill on 8 September 2091 at 00:27 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.885°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.923° in the next southern standstill on 20 September 2091 at 16:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 27 September 2091 at 15:56 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
