I have put together a complete guide to the Moon, the brightest object in our night sky, which has enchanted and inspired mankind for centuries.
Why do full moons have different names?
The early Native Americans didn't use time from the months of the Julian or Gregorian calendar. Instead tribes gave each full moon a name to keep track of the seasons and lunar months.
Most of the names relate to an activity or an event that took place local to each tribe. However, it wasn't a uniform system and tribes tended to name and count moons differently. Some, for example, counted four seasons a year while others counted five. Others defined a year as 12 moons, while others said there were 13.
Colonial Americans adopted some of the moon names and applied them to their own calendar system which is why they're still in existence today.

Special Events in 2022.
The next total lunar eclipse will take place in the UK until May 16, 2022.
The different stages of the total lunar eclipse, also known as the "super blood wolf moon
Sometimes known as the invisible phase, as it generally can't be seen in the sky. It's when the Sun and Moon are aligned, with the Sun and Earth on opposite sides of the Moon. As a result, the side of the Moon that faces the Earth is left in complete darkness.
Most experts agree that this refers to the second new moon in a calendar month, while some use the term to describe the third new moon in a season of four new moons. The last black moon took place on August 19, 2020.
Also known as a total lunar eclipse. It's when the shadow of Earth casts a reddish glow on the moon, the result of a rare combination of an eclipse with the closest full moon of the year. The next one set to be visible over South America, North America and parts of Europe and Africa on May 16, 2022. We in the UK won't be able to see every phase of this eclipse, but should be able to see it at totality when the Moon appears with a reddish-orange glow.
Well you've probably spotted a supermoon. They seem to be so close to us you can almost touch them.
The impressive sight happens when a full moon is at the point in its orbit that brings it closest to Earth. To us Earth-lings, it appears up to 30 per cent brighter and 14 per cent bigger.
In 2022, there will be a supermoon on June 14 and on July 13.
