Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2091 after 17 days on 25 December 2091 at 21:59.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1136 of Meeus index or 2089 from Brown series.
Length of current 1136 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 12 minutes. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1137 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠4.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠20.8°. 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°).
14 days after point of apogee on 23 November 2091 at 23:32 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 9 December 2091 at 08:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

9 days after previous North standstill on 28 November 2091 at 22:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.417°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.452° in the next southern standstill on 11 December 2091 at 21:10 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 10 December 2091 at 13:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
