All dates and times are in United States Eastern Time for cities such as New York, adjusted for Daylight Savings Time for part of the year. The dates in your local time may shift.

The four primary lunar phases are the new moon, the first quarter, the full moon, and the last quarter. The lunar month lasts approximately a month or 29.53 days on average, also called a  synodic month.

A new moon is the first lunar phase. 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.

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.

The September full moon is called the Harvest Moon because it’s closer to the Autumn Equinox than the October Full Moon.

When was the Harvest Moon in 1918?

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 1918 was on Friday, September 20, 1918. The September Full Moon was the ninth full moon of 1918 and was the full moon in Pisces. The Full Harvest Moon was the last full moon before the Autumnal Equinox, making it the last full moon of Summer 1918.

Was there a blue moon in 1918?

Yes, there was a seasonal blue moon in 1918 on Thursday, August 22, 1918 because Summer had an extra full moon. Summer had 4 full moons making the August 22 full moon a seasonal blue moon.

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.
