Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2094 after 21 days on 30 May 2094 at 00:58.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1166 of Meeus index or 2119 from Brown series.
Length of current 1166 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1167 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.7°. 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 13:33, this is 14 days after last apogee on 23 April 2094 at 23:58 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 21 May 2094 at 19:13 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 369 651 km (229 690 mi) away from Earth. It is 7 143 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 705 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after its descending node on 4 May 2094 at 20:35 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 May 2094 at 21:46 in ♋ Cancer.

3 days after previous South standstill on 5 May 2094 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.185°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.256° in the next northern standstill on 18 May 2094 at 05:10 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 14 May 2094 at 12:09 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
