Moon Phases
For You!

Create this Month's Moon Phase Report for your current location. Include your name to get a personalized page that you can save or print.

Be sure to include the number of hours (time zones) you are away from the UTC base, along with which direction you live, away from the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

Additionally, we have included the moon phases as observed by individuals living closer to the equator, which is slightly different than if you live in the Southern or Northern Latitudes, the phases will, more closely represent the Moon's Waxing and Waning directions based on living North, South, or near the equator. The appearance of the moon phases from either of the two poles (north or south) are not included since not as many people live in those regions of the world, but for all intents and purposes, would be opposite of the appearance from the equator. Please note that the seasons, fall, winter, spring, and summer also have a "directional" influence on the appearance of the moon from the various land masses all around the world. To represent those would require a whole different application.

For your convenience, we have included a table of Time Zone Differences below. If your area uses Daylight Saving Time, you may want to include that one hour difference onto your time zone difference. To "add" an hour onto the American time zones, it becomes "less" because in America, we are working with negative numbers. In example, Pacific Standard Time (PST) is W8 (-8) hours but Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) is W7 (-7) when adding one hour. PS. All of the Americas North and South are West of the UTC.

This page is in its current format for testing purposes only. It will eventually be added to the main portion of the site. If you encounter any errors, please feel free to send us a screenshot of the error you encountered to the email address on our contact page.

Time Zones

The Time and Date people have created a great resource to help you, if you don't know your time zone. Below their map is a search tool that you can enter any nearby major city that you live close by, and should get show you which time zone you live in (or at least next to) which is better than nothing.
