Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 15 days on 31 January 2094 at 12:36.
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.

29 days, 10 hours and 38 minutes is the length of new lunation 1163. It is 37 minutes longer than next lunation 1164 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠352.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠7.9°. 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 apogee on 4 January 2094 at 09:27 in ♌ Leo. 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 17 January 2094 at 05:33 in ♒ Aquarius.

1 day after previous South standstill on 15 January 2094 at 19:36 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.474°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.474° in the next northern standstill on 28 January 2094 at 23:58 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
