Was there a blue moon in 1900?

No there was not a blue moon in 1900. Each month had 1 full moon, and each season had 3 full moons.

There are two definitions of blue moons. The most common, and the one you likely know, is when two full moons occur in the same month. The second full moon is typically called a blue moon.

The second definition relates to having an extra full moon on the calendar during a season. When a season has four full moons, the third full moon of the season is also called a blue moon or a seasonal blue moon.

When was the Harvest Moon in 1900?

Each year the full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox is called the Harvest Moon. Depending on the year, the Harvest Moon may either be part of the Summer or Autumn season.

The Full Harvest Moon in 1900 was on Sunday, September 9, 1900. The September Full Moon was the ninth full moon of 1900 and was the full moon in Pisces. It was also a supermoon, making it a Super Harvest Moon or a Harvest Supermoon. The Full Harvest Moon was the last full moon before the Autumnal Equinox, making it the final full moon of Summer 1900.

The September Full Moon was considered the Harvest Moon in 1900 because it was closer to the Fall Equinox than the October Full Moon by hours.

Full Supermoons in 1900

In 1900, there were two full supermoons during the September and October Full Moons. Depending on the definition you use, the August and November full moons could also be considered supermoons.

A full supermoon is a full moon that nearly coincides with the closest point that the Moon comes to the Earth in its orbit, called perigee. The moon will have a larger-than-usual appearance. There isn’t an official definition on the exact distance the moon needs to be to be called a supermoon. It’s approximately 360,000 kilometers or closer depending on the definition.

Lunar Eclipses in 1900

During 1900 there were two penumbral lunar eclipses. The first penumbral lunar eclipse was part of the June Full Moon on June 12th (June 13th UTC). The second penumbral lunar eclipse was part of the December Full Moon on December 6th.

What are the phases of the moon?

The four primary lunar phases are the new moon, the first quarter, the full moon, and the last quarter.

A new moon is the first lunar phase, which occurs on average about once a month or 29.53 days. The moon itself is not visible, though you may be able to “see” it because it blocks the visibility of the stars behind it.

A full moon occurs when the Earth is directly between the Sun and the Moon, allowing the moon to appear illuminated entirely. It happens about once a month, or 29.53 days on average.

The first quarter moon occurs between the new moon and the full moon, and the last quarter moon occurs after the full moon and before the next new moon.
