2019 New Moons: Calendar of 13 new moons

When were the new moons in 2019? Here’s the New Moon Calendar 2019 to help you look back at that year.

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.

In 2019 there were 13 new moons, one each month with one month that had two, along with solstices, equinoxes, solar eclipses, and supermoons.

Was there a black moon in 2019?

Yes, there was a black moon in 2019 because July had two new moons in the Eastern Time Zone. For time zones to the east of the United States, the black moon was in August.

There are four potential definitions for a black moon, though all unofficial. As a result, it’s not rare to have a black moon in a year. It’s not possible to have all four in one year.

  • A month with two new moons
  • A month without a full moon, only a new moon
  • A month without a new moon, only a full moon
  • A season with four new moons, making the third a seasonal black moon

Because February has either 28 or 29 days, it’s the only calendar month that may not have both a new moon and a full moon in a given year.
