Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2098 after 14 days on 15 February 2098 at 21:00.
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 09:54 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1213 of Meeus index or 2166 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 8 minutes is the length of new lunation 1213. It is 2 hours and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 1214 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠197°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠225.5°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 30 January 2098 at 12:32 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 February 2098 at 18:30 in ♌ Leo.

3 days after previous South standstill on 29 January 2098 at 04:12 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.941°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.051° in the next northern standstill on 12 February 2098 at 08:06 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
