Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2094 after 20 days on 1 April 2094 at 00:11.

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠24.6°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 27 February 2094 at 15:03 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 March 2094 at 04:25 in ♓ Pisces.

Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.815° in its northern standstill point on 24 March 2094 at 12:07 in ♋ Cancer.
After 5 days on 16 March 2094 at 15:44 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
