Full Moon Calendar


Our Full Moon Calendar includes the dates, names, and times of all upcoming full moons. Each of the full moons have been given a specific name (full moon names) with fascinating facts behind their meaning, including the famous Blue Moon. And in case you didn’t know already, a full moon is a lunar phase that occurs when the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. The full moon calendar is important because the lunar month is only 29 days long on the average, so the full moon dates shift from year to year.

The full moon calendar dates are expressed in Coordinated Universal Time (UT), or Greenwich Mean Time, the international basis for other time zones. If your local time zone is currently on Daylight Saving Time or Summer Time, please add one hour to the standard times listed in the Next Moon phases tables.

Full Moon Names History

Full Moon Calendar

Full Moon Calendar

Full Moon names have been used by many cultures to describe the full moon throughout the year. Specifically, Native American tribes used moon phases and cycles to keep track of the seasons by giving a distinctive name to each recurring full moon, including the Flower Moon. The unique full moon names were used to identify the entire month during which each occurred.

Although many Native American tribes gave distinct names to the full moon, the most well known full moon names come from the Algonquin tribes who lived in the area of New England and westward to Lake Superior. The Algonquin tribes had perhaps the greatest effect on the early European settlers in America, and the settlers adopted the Native American habit of naming the full moons.
