Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2099 after 11 days on 5 February 2099 at 12:48.

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠149°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠175.1°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 24 January 2099 at 12:47 in ♓ Pisces. 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 6 February 2099 at 04:14 in ♌ Leo.

6 days after previous South standstill on 18 January 2099 at 22:15 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.389°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.479° in the next northern standstill on 2 February 2099 at 10:56 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 5 February 2099 at 12:48 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
