What is a full moon?

This spectacle occurs when the earth comes directly between the sun and the moon.

It happens every 29 and a half days, and each month’s full moon has a special name.

This is because Native American tribes kept track of the months of the year by the lunar calendar.

Here’s the full list of upcoming full moons and the dates they fall on.

When is the next full moon in 2019?

SEPTEMBER 2019: Harvest Moon

This full moon, which falls closest to the September equinox, is named after the Harvest season.

It will hit full illumination on September 14 at 5.33am.

The month of the Harvest Moon varies with it appearing in October every three years.

When it appears in October, the September Moon is known as Full Corn Moon.

The Wolf Moon is the first moon of the year

When are all the full moons of 2019?

JANUARY 2019: Wolf Moon

The first moon of 2019 was a Super Blood Wolf Moon – meaning it was three moons in one.

It is called the Wolf Moon as it’s when wolves can be heard howling in America.

The Jan 2019 Moon was also a Supermoon and a total eclipse, hence the “blood” name.

It was in our skies on Monday, January 21, and was the first of three Supermoons in a row.

FEBRUARY 2019: Snow Moon

This month saw Snow Moon on February 19.

The moon is named after America’s snowy season.

While some call it the Hunger Moon, because of the difficult hunting conditions at this time.

In 2019 this is also one of the three Supermoons.

MARCH 2019: Worm Moon

This particular spectacle has many names – and can also be known as the Sap Moon, Crow Moon or Lenten Moon.

In 2019, it fell on March 21 – and it’s also a Supermoon.

It was the third Supermoon in a row.

APRIL 2019: Pink Moon

Despite its name, it isn’t a pink coloured moon.

This spectacle is named after the wildflowers which grow in the United States and Canada in the spring.

It’s also known as the Egg Moon or Fish Moon, because of the shad fish that swim upstream at this time of year.

This moon is particularly important because it is used to fix the date of Easter, which falls on the first Sunday after the Pink Moon, and marks the start of the Jewish Passover.

In 2019, the Pink Moon rose on April 19.

MAY 2019: Flower Moon

This moon signifies the blooming of flowers and the variety that bare their petals in May – it is also known as Corn Planting Moon and Milk Moon.

In 2019, this was seen on May 18.

JUNE 2019: Strawberry Moon

This moon gets its name as it is the time the fruit ripens.

Other names for it are Hot Moon, Mead Moon and Rose Moon.

This year, it rose on June 17, with its peak at 9.30am.

JULY 2019: Thunder Moon

Also known as the Buck Moon, as new antlers emerge from bucks’ foreheads around this time of the year.

It is named after the thunderstorms which typically fall during this month.

It will rise on July 16 this year.

AUGUST 2019: Sturgeon Moon

Native Americans named this moon after the large number of sturgeon fish in the lakes at this time.

It’s also known as the Green Corn Moon, Barley Moon, Fruit Moon or Grain Moon and will rise on August 15.

SEPTEMBER 2019: Harvest Moon

This full moon, which falls closest to the September equinox, is named after the Harvest season.

It will shine on September 14.

The month of the Harvest Moon varies with it appearing in October every three years.

When it appears in October the September Moon is known as Full Corn Moon.

OCTOBER 2019: Hunter’s Moon

As people planned ahead to winter, October traditionally became a big time for hunting game – which were becoming fatter thanks to falling grains.

It’s also known as the Travel Moon or, rather depressingly, the Dying Grass Moon.

It will be very visible on October 13.

Every three years the October Moon is the Harvest Moon.

NOVEMBER 2019: Mourning Moon

The Mourning Moon marks the beginning of the end and in many cultures it is connected to death and loss.

It is also called the Reed Moon by Celtic cultures because it is compared to the mournful music made by wind instruments to the sounds of spirits being taken to the underworld.

In the US it is known as Beaver Moon.

This year, it will rise on November 12.

DECEMBER 2019: Cold Moon

There’s no prizes for guessing how this wintry moon got its name.

This year, it will shine its brightest here on December 12.

It will be the last full moon in 2019.
