In 1982, there were 13 full moons on the calendar. In the later part of the year, there will be a blue moon.

For the 1982 Blue moon in Eastern United States time, it will occur in November. Because the second November full moon is so late in the day, for UTC the blue moon actually shifted into December.

As part of the January and July 1982 full moon, there were total lunar full moon eclipses.
