Wondering when were the full moons in 1993? Here’s the Full Moon Calendar 1993 to help you go back and check the 13 full moons.
Full Moon Calendar 1993
In 1993, there were 13 full moons. There was a calendar blue moon on the calendar during the summer season.
1993 was also one of the few years where when looking at the full moon in Eastern Time and UTC, the full moon changed months. In terms of Eastern Time, the full moon occured at the end of August 1993.
Since the peak of the full moon was so late in the day, for UTC the moon shifted over September. The Full Moon at the end of September became the full moon when looking at this in UTC.
I’m sure this frequently happens with other time zone comparisons. It’s something I see less often when looking at just EST versus UTC.
Also in 1993 there were two total lunar full moon eclipses in June and November.
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).
