Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2097 after 15 days on 19 November 2097 at 13:03.
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 02:08 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1210 of Meeus index or 2163 from Brown series.
29 days, 17 hours and 18 minutes is the length of new lunation 1210. It is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than next lunation 1211 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠112.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠145.6°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 24 October 2097 at 15:32 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 November 2097 at 12:12 in ♑ Capricorn.

9 days after previous North standstill on 25 October 2097 at 18:37 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.974°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.959° in the next southern standstill on 8 November 2097 at 10:53 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
