Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2095 after 11 days on 14 September 2095 at 01:11.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1183 of Meeus index or 2136 from Brown series.
Length of current 1183 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 1184 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠168.3°. 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 apogee on this date at 11:07, this is 15 days after last perigee on 17 August 2095 at 18:05 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 14 September 2095 at 22:53 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 405 946 km (252 243 mi) away from Earth. It is 538 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 763 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
9 days after its ascending node on 23 August 2095 at 13:13 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 September 2095 at 00:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.

8 days after previous North standstill on 25 August 2095 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.058°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.188° in the next southern standstill on 9 September 2095 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 14 September 2095 at 01:11 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
