Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2091 after 13 days on 27 October 2091 at 09:18.
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 1135 of Meeus index or 2088 from Brown series.
Length of current 1135 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 13 minutes. It is 59 minutes shorter than next lunation 1136 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠349.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠4.7°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 09:20, this is 12 days after last apogee on 30 September 2091 at 16:41 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 October 2091 at 22:34 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 357 592 km (222 197 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 916 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 764 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after its ascending node on 9 October 2091 at 12:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 October 2091 at 03:28 in ♓ Pisces.

8 days after previous North standstill on 5 October 2091 at 08:31 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.007°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.095° in the next southern standstill on 17 October 2091 at 23:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 27 October 2091 at 09:18 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
