Most times there’s usually three full moons between an equinox and a solstice. The difference being that a solstice is when the Sun is at the farthest distance from Earth’s celestial equator, and the equinox being when it’s at the least distance from it. During a solstice, we usually experience rather long nights and short days, while during an equinox the day and night cycle is nearly equal.
Meanwhile 7 times within 19 years there are four full moons in a single season, and 2 full moons fall in the same calendar month! When two full moons occur in the same month, typically the second is known as a Blue Moon, whereas when 4 full moons occur in the same season, the third becomes a Blue Moon.
Yet depending on the season and month of the year, full moons are given different names based on the characteristics of the month or season they appear in. Find out the names of each moon based on the month, depending on either the Northern or Southern hemisphere. Below you’ll find the name of each moon based on season.
