Full Moon Calendar 2048

When are the full moons in 2048? Here’s the Full Moon Calendar 2048 to help you keep track of the 13 full moons. Get excited. This is going to be an interesting year of full moons.

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.

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 2048

For 2048, there will be 13 full moons. There is a calendar blue moon on the schedule for this year and a seasonal blue moon.

Why did this happen? It’s also a leap year. What probably should have been a black moon year turned into a blue moon, followed by a leap day full moon, followed by a seasonal blue moon. We’ll hit the trifecta in 2048.

And to add even more to the mix, we’ll start the year with a full moon on January 1st that also occurs with a total lunar full moon eclipse.

The June full moon will coincide with a partial lunar eclipse and during December full moon, there will be a penumbral lunar eclipse.

In the Summer 2048 season, there will be four full moons because the September full moon reaches its peak hours before the Fall Equinox. As a result, the August 2048 full moon will be considered a seasonal full moon.

Note: The UTC dates show up differently for January, March, and June because of the conversion between EST and UTC.
