Upcoming Moon Phases
Welcome to MoonPhases.co.uk a new and simple-to-use tool for exploring and looking at the different Phases of the Moon.
The Moon changes its apparent shape with four distinct phases depending on the Moon’s position as it orbits around the Earth, and the Earth’s position as it orbits around the Sun. There are four main Moon phases, also known as Lunar Phases: First Quarter, Full Moon, Last Quarter and New Moon. An additional four intermediate phases make up the combined eight phases that comprise the Phases of the Moon in the following sequential order: New Moon, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Last Quarter and Waning Crescent.

This site lets you view the current Moon Phase with the next few days phases at a glance, or you can view an entire calendar month and select all of the Moon’s phases for any given day, month and year from 1950 through to 2050 on the Moon Calendar page. In addition, if you set your location using our handy tool to the left, you can view any day’s Moonrise and Moonset times.
Over the coming months, we’ll be adding in more luna based facts and fun, so keep your eyes peeled. If you wish to display the current Moon Phase on your own website, you can use one of our handy widgets on the Tools page.
