Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2095 after 13 days on 11 November 2095 at 19:05.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1185 of Meeus index or 2138 from Brown series.
Length of current 1185 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2095. It is 52 minutes longer than next lunation 1186 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠192.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠219.6°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 26 October 2095 at 21:48 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 November 2095 at 21:09 in ♈ Aries.

12 days after its ascending node on 16 October 2095 at 18:35 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 October 2095 at 04:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.

10 days after previous North standstill on 18 October 2095 at 21:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.525°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.619° in the next southern standstill on 2 November 2095 at 15:39 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 11 November 2095 at 19:05 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
