Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2100 after 15 days on 26 January 2100 at 02:49.
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.

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 15 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 48 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠81.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠119.1°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 3 January 2100 at 08:57 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 January 2100 at 10:48 in ♈ Aries.

1 day after previous South standstill on 8 January 2100 at 21:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.379°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.437° in the next northern standstill on 23 January 2100 at 08:16 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
