Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2095 after 14 days on 13 October 2095 at 09:30.
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.
At 12:54 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1184 of Meeus index or 2137 from Brown series.
29 days, 17 hours and 38 minutes is the length of new lunation 1184. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1185 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠168.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠192.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
13 days after point of perigee on 14 September 2095 at 22:53 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 September 2095 at 20:21 in ♎ Libra.

6 days after previous North standstill on 21 September 2095 at 14:29 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.292°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.437° in the next southern standstill on 6 October 2095 at 09:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
