No Full Moon February 2018

 

This February there will be no full moon! There were two full moons in January and will be two more in March, but every 19 years, the month of February exists without that “full moon glow”. This is because it takes 29.5 days for the moon to go through all of its phases, and only 28 days for the month of February to come to an end.

Although there won’t be a full moon this month, you may be able to catch a glimpse of a penumbral eclipse! A penumbral lunar eclipse takes place when the Moon moves through the faint, outer part of Earth’s shadow. Parts of Europe and Africa will be able to see the “full eclipse”, where as SWFL will only see a partial eclipse at moonrise. But keep your eyes to the sky, because there are plenty of surprises the universe has to offer.
