Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2095 after 17 days on 11 December 2095 at 06:21.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 06:05, this is 12 days after last perigee on 10 November 2095 at 21:09 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 9 December 2095 at 04:46 in ♉ Taurus.
This apogee Moon is 405 873 km (252 198 mi) away from Earth. It is 465 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 836 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

8 days after previous North standstill on 15 November 2095 at 06:31 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.649°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.668° in the next southern standstill on 29 November 2095 at 21:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 27 November 2095 at 00:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
