What are the names of 2022 new moons?

The names of the 2022 new moons are as follows:

  • January: New Wolf Moon

  • March: New Worm Moon
  • April (beginning): New Pink Moon
  • April (end): New Flower Moon
  • May: New Strawberry Moon

The new moons take their name based on the date of their associated full moon. Sometimes the new moon is in the same month as its full moon, while in others it’s in the month prior.

The August new moon is called the new Harvest Moon because the September Full Moon is closer to the Autumn Equinox than the October Full Moon.

Will there be a black moon in 2022?

Yes, 2022 will have a black moon because April 2022 will have two new moons.

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.

In 2022 April had 2 new moons, matching one of the black moon definitions. For both the UTC and Eastern time zones, a new moon at the beginning of the month and one at the end. Because a new moon occurs approximately every 29.53 days, it’s possible for the calendar to line up just right for two to occur in one month.
