Mumsnet Moonwatch

You may think this is all a bit lentil weaving, but over the last eight-odd years at MN Towers we’ve noticed that things tend to go a bit crazy around here come the full moon. So, with that in mind, we thought a bit of advance warning might help us all to resist our melodramatic tendencies, or alternatively to serve as a timely reminder to dress up in native costume and parade around the garden. Whichever you prefer.

The current moon phase is new moon. The moon reached new moon at 01:36 on Monday 22 December. First quarter is Sunday 28 December at 18:31.


Dates and times in this guide are all UTC - formerly known as GMT. This is the same as UK local time in the winter, but from the last Sunday in March until the last Saturday in October, the UK switches to British Summer Time, which is one hour ahead of UTC.
