The dates and times provided by NASA in United States Eastern Time (ET) account for both Eastern Standard Time (EST) and Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) for part of the year in the United States. Also below is the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) time. This was previously referred to as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Since your local time zone may be different, the exact dates may shift slightly for your calendar.

Full Moon Calendar 1982

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.
