Full Moon 2018 Calendar with 13 full moons

The Full Moon 2018 Calendar has 13 full moons, solstices, equinoxes, and full moon eclipses to help you look back and the past dates. 2018 was also an interesting year with 2 blue moons and one month that didn’t have a full moon at all!

A full moon occurs when the Earth is directly between the Sun and Moon so that the moon looks completely illuminated when you look at it. It happens about once a month or, 29.53 days on average.

Typically there are 12 full moons each year, and in 2018 there were 13 full moons instead because there were two blue moons.

Full Moon Calendar 2018

There were 13 full moons in 2018. And because the year started off with a full moon, the full moon calendar did a few unusual things. First, there were 2 blue moons early in the year (assuming you go by the definition of 2 full moons in a calendar month). As a result of the early-year blue moons (January and March), there was not a full moon in February!
