When is the next full moon?

A full moon appears fully illuminated by the earth during a specific lunar phase.

This happens once every 29.5 days, meaning there are at least 12 full moons each year – although sometimes there can be 13.

Each is defined by its own unique name and appearance.

For 2022 these are:

  • January 17 – Wolf Moon
  • February 16 – snow moon
  • March 18 – Wormmoon
  • April 16 – Pink Moon
  • May 16 – Flower Moon
  • June 14 – Strawberry Moon
  • July 13 – Buck Moon
  • August 11 – sturgeon moon
  • September 10 – Harvest Moon
  • October 9 – Hunter’s Moon
  • November 8 – Beaver moon
  • December 7 – Cold Moon

There is no blue moon in 2022 as no month in 2022 has two full moons.

What is a super moon?

A supermoon is an awe-inspiring sight where the amazingly bright moon looks so close you could almost touch it.

It’s a combination of two different astronomical effects and occurs when a new or full moon coincides with a perigee — the moon’s narrowest point pointing toward Earth in its monthly orbit.

A moon must come within 90 percent of its closest approach to Earth to be officially defined as a supermoon.

This is relatively rare and only occurs a few times a year.

In 2022 there will be one supermoon on June 14th and July 13th.

On these days, the moon appears up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter.

When is the best time to see the Buck Moon Supermoon?

The best time to see Superman July 2022 depends on where in the world you are.

Its closest approach is at 9:04 UTC on July 13, which would be 10:04 in the UK.

And in New York you see 5:04.

But the full moon actually peaks about 9-10 hours later.

So around 7:38 p.m. the British have a good chance of seeing the moon in the east.

New Yorkers should look to the skies on Wednesday morning, Wednesday evening, and Thursday morning.

In any case, the moon will look very large today and tomorrow, so keep an eye out for it – even if you can’t look at the perfect time.
