Full moon calendar 2024

The next full moon will be on Saturday, Feb. 24 at 7:30 a.m. EST (1204 GMT), but the moon will still appear full the night before and after its peak to the casual stargazer.

February’s full moon is also known as the Snow Moon, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

The full moon shows its face to Earth about once a month. Well, sort of.

Most of the time, the full moon isn’t perfectly full. We always see the same side of the moon, but part of it is in shadow, due to the moon’s rotation. Only when the moon, Earth and the sun are perfectly aligned is the moon 100% full, and that alignment produces a lunar eclipse.

And sometimes — once in a blue moon — the moon is full twice in a month (or four times in a season, depending on which definition you prefer).

This is when full moons will occur in 2024, according to NASA:
