Blue Moon: This type of moon occurs about every two-and-a-half years, when two full moons happen within the same calendar month. The first full moon in the month will go by the name normally assigned to that month’s full moon, and the second is commonly called a “Blue Moon,” according to the Almanac.

Supermoon: A full moon is said to be a “supermoon” when it is at the point in its orbit closest to Earth. In astronomy, the terms “perigee syzygy” or “perigee full moon” are typically used instead of “supermoon.”

Remaining full moons of 2023:

  • September 29 at 5:57 a.m. – Super Harvest Moon
  • October 28 at 4:24 p.m. – Full Hunter Moon
  • November 27 at 4:16 a.m. – Full Beaver Moon
  • December 26 at 7:33 p.m. – Full Cold Moon
