Full Moon Calendar 1987

In 1987, there were 12 full moons on the calendar. None of the months had more than one full moon so no blue moons occurred in 1987.

For the most part it was a routine full moon year. I should note that the March full moon fell on March 15th, the Ides of March. Hopefully it was quiet day for you.

As part of the April and October 1987 full moons there were penumbral lunar eclipses.

The dates and times are provided by NASA in Eastern Standard Time (EST) with Daylight Saving Time (DST) for part of the year. Also below is the Universal Time Coordinated (UTC) time. This was previously referred to at Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
