Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2096 after 14 days on 9 January 2096 at 19:20.
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 18:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1187 of Meeus index or 2140 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes is the length of new lunation 1187. It is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 1188 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠255°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠291.7°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 20 December 2095 at 23:26 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 5 January 2096 at 18:18 in ♉ Taurus.
