Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2098 after 13 days on 17 March 2098 at 07:43.
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 04:02 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1214 of Meeus index or 2167 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 45 minutes is the length of new lunation 1214. It is 3 hours longer than next lunation 1215 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠225.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠260.4°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 27 February 2098 at 00:05 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 March 2098 at 23:15 in ♌ Leo.

6 days after previous South standstill on 25 February 2098 at 10:08 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.136°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.231° in the next northern standstill on 11 March 2098 at 15:13 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
