Home » Moon Phases » 1986 Moon Phases: Dates of the lunar phases in 1986

The 1986 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 1986? 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 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 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.
