1980 Moon Phases: Dates of the lunar phases in 1980

Home » Moon Phases » 1980 Moon Phases: Dates of the lunar phases in 1980

The 1980 Moon Phases schedule will help you look back at when the new, first quart, full, and last quarter moons occurred each month of the year. When did the 4 core phases of the lunar calendar occur in 1980? Check out the dates below.

A new moon is the first lunar phase that happens about once a month or 29.53 days on average. The moon itself is not visible, though you may be able to “see” it because it blocks the visibility of the stars behind it.

A full moon occurs when the Earth is between the Sun and the Moon, so the moon looks completely illuminated. It happens about once a month or 29.53 days on average, also called a  synodic month.

The first quarter moon occurs between the new moon and full moon. The last quarter moon occurs after the full moon and before the next new moon.
