Mark your calendars! The next July full moon is Sunday, July 5, 2020 00:44 EST based on the data provided by NASA.
The Name for the July Full Moon
The July full moon is commonly referred to as the Buck Moon.
Dates for Full Moons in July for 2020 through 2024
Wondering when in the future the full moons will occur in July? Here’s a list through 2024.
Full moons can coincide with a lunar eclipse: total, partial, or penumbral. Looking at the next six years, only the 2020 July full moon will line up with an eclipse. The July 2020 Full moon peak will occur with a penumbral lunar eclipse.
None of the full moons in July through 2024 are scheduled to be a blue moon. You’ll need to wait until the July 2034 full moon to have two full moons in July. I should also note it’s not possible for July to have a seasonal full moon, because it is always either the first or second full moon in the summer season.
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).
