Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2098 after 14 days on 12 August 2098 at 01:44.
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 08:51 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1219 of Meeus index or 2172 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 2 minutes is the length of new lunation 1219. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1220 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 42 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 27 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10.1°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 15:50, this is 13 days after last apogee on 15 July 2098 at 11:43 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 11 August 2098 at 14:55 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 310 km (222 022 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 198 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 046 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its ascending node on 20 July 2098 at 16:26 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 August 2098 at 04:55 in ♎ Libra.

2 days after previous North standstill on 26 July 2098 at 04:44 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.239°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.295° in the next southern standstill on 8 August 2098 at 03:03 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
