Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2098 after 14 days on 15 April 2098 at 19:04.
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 19:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1215 of Meeus index or 2168 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 45 minutes is the length of new lunation 1215. It is 2 hours and 54 minutes longer than next lunation 1216 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠260.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠294.5°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 26 March 2098 at 18:28 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 April 2098 at 03:38 in ♌ Leo.

7 days after previous South standstill on 24 March 2098 at 17:32 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.293°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.320° in the next northern standstill on 7 April 2098 at 20:47 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
