Was there a blue moon in 1909?

Yes, there was a blue moon in 1909 on Tuesday, August 31, 1909. August had two full moons with the second full moon being considered a blue moon. Each season in 1909 had 3 full moons so there was not also a seasonal blue moon that year.

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 1909?

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 1909 was on Wednesday, September 29, 1909. The September Full Moon was the tenth full moon of 1909 and was the full moon in Aries. The Full Harvest Moon was the first full moon after the Autumnal Equinox, making it the first full moon of Fall 1909.

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.
