1993 New Moon Calendar with 12 new moons

The New Moons 1993 Calendar had 12 new moons, solstices, equinoxes, and solar eclipses to help you look back at the past dates.

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.

Typically there are 12 new moons each year, and 1993 followed the usual pattern of other years.

A black moon occurs when a month either has no new moon or a season has 4 new moons. In 1993 each month had at least 1 new moon, so there wasn’t a black moon based on the first definition.
