Moon calendar for June 2016: New Moon Sunday 5 and Full Moon Monday 20

Moon calendar for June 2016, 00:00:00 UT.

A full moon is often thought of as an event of a full night's duration. This is somewhat misleading because the Moon seen from Earth is continuously becoming larger or smaller (though much too slowly to notice with the naked eye). Its absolute maximum size occurs at the moment expansion has stopped.

For any given location, about half of these absolute maximum full moons will be potentially visible, as the other half occur during the day, when the full moon is below the horizon.

Each new lunar cycle is measured beginning at each new moon. Astronomers call one lunar cycle a lunation.

New moon is the first phase of the Moon, when it orbits as seen from the Earth, the moment when the Moon and the Sun have the same ecliptical longitude. The Moon is not visible at this time except when it is seen in silhouette during a solar eclipse when it is illuminated by earthshine.
