Lunar calendar 2021 – Check out the events of the year

Every year, countless events take place in the skies and, if we are not prepared, chances are great that incredible shows of the universe will go unnoticed.

For you to be prepared and not miss a thing, we prepared the 2021 lunar calendar with the main astrological events of the year, such as moon phase changes, meteor showers, eclipses and much more!

And to make it even easier to know when the phases of the moon will happen, check out the 2021 lunar calendar:

January 2021 lunar calendar

  • January 2-3 – Quadrantid Meteor Shower

First meteor shower of the year, the Quadrantids are the remnants of asteroid 2003 EH1. This rain happens annually in January, between the 1st and 5th, but in 2021, it will be at its peak on the night of the 2nd and in the early hours of the 3rd.

To appreciate the Quadrantids, you can look for the Boieiro constellation, below the Ursa Major constellation, preferably after midnight.

  • January 6, at 06:38:35 – Waning Moon
  • January 13 at 02:02:37 – New Moon
  • January 24 – Mercury at maximum eastern elongation

Elongation represents the angle between the Earth and the Sun, as seen from Earth. What this means is that it will be quite easy to locate Mercury just after sunset in the western sky, as the planet will be at its highest point above the horizon.

  • January 28 at 16:18:35 – Full Moon

Lunar calendar February 2021

  • February 4, at 2:38:42 pm – Waning Moon

  • February 19 at 15:49:06 – Crescent Moon
  • February 27 at 05:19:36 – Full Moon

March 2021 lunar calendar

  • March 5, at 22:32:00 – Waning Moon
  • March 6 – Mercury at maximum western elongation

Unlike the event that took place in January, Mercury will be at its highest point, just looking to the eastern horizon just before sunrise.

  • March 13 at 07:23:32 – New Moon
  • March 21 at 11:41:46 – Crescent Moon
  • March 20, 06:27 – Autumnal Equinox and Venus at maximum western elongation

On the day that marks the end of summer and the beginning of autumn in the southern hemisphere, the Sun will shine directly on the Equator, making both night and day last 12 hours each.

Also, if you want to admire the view of Venus in the sky, take the opportunity to look at the eastern horizon before sunrise. On that day, Venus will be at its highest point above the horizon.

  • March 28 at 15:50:04 – Full Moon

  • April 20 at 04:00:01 – Crescent Moon
  • April 22-23 – Lyrid (or Lyrid) meteor shower

Residues of comet C/1861 G1 (Thatcher), the Lyrids are an annual meteor shower that occurs between the 16th and 25th of April, located in the constellation of Lyra.

This year, the lyrids will be at their peak on the night of the 22nd and early in the morning of the 23rd, with about 20 meteors per hour. To best watch this spectacle, look for one with little or no lighting after midnight.

In 2021, however, the Crescent Moon could disrupt the meteors’ view: heading towards the Full Moon, the satellite will light up the skies and cause only the brightest meteors to be seen.

  • April 27 at 00:33:04 – Full Moon and Supermoon

Astronomy explains that a Supermoon occurs when the Full Moon approaches its perigee, that is, the point of its orbit closest to Earth. Due to its proximity to our planet, the Moon appears to be larger and brighter than usual.

Lunar Calendar May 2021

  • May 3 at 16:51:43 – Waning Moon
  • May 6th and 7th – Eta Aquarids meteor shower

Associated with Halley’s Comet, the Eta Aquarids often put on a show in the southern hemisphere, with up to 60 meteors per hour during their peak!

The meteor shower usually happens between April 19 and May 28, annually, and its radiant (“point of origin” of meteors) is located in the constellation of Aquarius.

The luminosity of the Waning Moon can hinder the vision of the Eta Aquarids a little, but looking for a dark place after midnight will certainly guarantee the vision of some meteors!

  • May 11 at 16:01:33 – New Moon
  • May 17 – Mercury at maximum eastern elongation

To get a view of this planet, which will be at its highest point above the horizon, pay attention to the western horizon just after sunset.

  • May 19 at 16:13:13 – Crescent Moon
  • May 26 at 08:14:51 – Full Moon, Supermoon and Total Lunar Eclipse

Triple event on the night of May 26th! In addition to the Supermoon, when the Full Moon comes closest to Earth during its orbit and appears to be larger and brighter, there will also be a total lunar eclipse: during this event, the Moon completely passes through our planet’s shadow.

This eclipse can be seen in its entirety in the Pacific, part of Asia, Australia and part of North America. Here in Brazil, only a few cities on the northeast coast will not have the opportunity to enjoy the event.

Lunar calendar June 2021

  • June 2 at 04:26:04 – Waning Moon
  • June 10 at 07:54:05 – New Moon
  • June 10 – Solar Eclipse

Solar eclipses happen when the Moon is so far away from Earth in its orbit that it covers the sunlight. The June 10 eclipse will be an annular eclipse, meaning only a ring of light will be seen around the Moon.

Unfortunately, Brazil will not be able to enjoy this eclipse! It will only be visible in Russia, the Arctic, Canada and Greenland. Partially, it can be seen in the United States and Europe as well.

  • June 18 at 00:54:44 – Crescent Moon
  • June 21 at 00:21 – Winter Solstice

Unlike what occurs during equinoxes, when the Sun shines directly on the equator, at solstices, sunlight falls with greater intensity on only one of the hemispheres.

On the solstice of June 21st, the Sun will most intensely illuminate the Tropic of Cancer in the northern hemisphere, marking both the beginning of summer for that part of the planet and the beginning of winter for the southern hemisphere.

  • June 24 at 15:40:14 – Full Moon

July 2021 lunar calendar

  • July 1, at 18:12:39 – Waning Moon
  • July 4 – Mercury at maximum western elongation

The time to observe Mercury is now: on the morning of the 4th, before sunrise, look towards the eastern horizon and you will be able to observe the planet, which will be at its highest point on the horizon.

  • July 9 at 10:17:43 pm – New Moon
  • July 17, at 07:11:37 – Crescent Moon
  • July 23, at 23:37:27 – Full Moon
  • July 28 and 29 – Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower

Originating from Marsden and Kracht comets, this rain occurs annually between July 12 and August 23, with a peak on July 28 and 29.

During the height of this rain, which has its radiant in the constellation of Aquarius, it is possible to observe about 20 meteors per hour, after midnight.

The Full Moon can interfere with Delta Aquarids’ vision, especially of darker objects, but it will still be possible to observe some meteors.

  • July 31 at 10:18:16 – Waning Moon

August 2021 lunar calendar

  • August 2 – Saturn at Opposition

On that day, Saturn will be at its closest point to Earth and will be completely illuminated by the Sun. This means that it will be possible to observe both the planet and its rings, as well as some of its moons!

Saturn will be a bright spot in the sky, visible throughout the night, so don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy this amazing event.

  • August 8, 10:50:46 am – New Moon
  • August 12-13 – Perseid meteor shower

Visible between July 17th and August 24th and produced by Comet Swift-Tuttle, the Perseids will delight anyone looking at the sky on the night of the 12th and dawn of the 13th.

During the peak of the Perseids, whose point of origin is in the Perseus constellation, up to 60 meteors per hour can be seen in the sky, preferably away from lights and after midnight.

Unlike other meteor showers so far, it will be easy to observe the celestial show, as the New Moon makes it easier to see the meteors. No missing this show, okay?

  • August 15, at 12:21:04 – Crescent Moon
  • August 19 – Jupiter at Opposition

Like the event earlier this month, Jupiter will be closest to Earth in its orbit, receiving full sunlight. So it will be easy to locate the planet in the sky: a big bright spot, visible all night long.

In addition to seeing the largest planet in our Solar System, it will also be possible to see the four largest moons of Jupiter: Ganymede, Callisto, Europa and Io.

  • August 22 at 09:02:15 – Full Moon
  • August 30, at 04:15:02 – Waning Moon

Lunar calendar September 2021

  • September 6 at 9:52:01 pm – New Moon
  • September 13, at 17:41:20 – Crescent Moon
  • September 14 – Mercury in maximum eastern elongation and Neptune in opposition

As with the May event, just pay attention to the western horizon just after sunset to catch a glimpse of this planet.

Later, Neptune will be closer to Earth on that day. Despite being brighter because it receives sunlight on its visible side, we will only be able to see it with the help of powerful telescopes due to its distance from Earth.

  • September 20 at 20:54:44 – Full Moon
  • September 22 at 4:11 pm – Spring Equinox

Like what happened in March, the event marks the beginning of spring in the southern hemisphere; in the north it is the first day of autumn.

October 2021 lunar calendar

  • October 6 at 08:05:44 – New Moon
  • October 7 – Draconid Meteor Shower

Produced by comet 21P Giacobini-Zinner and radiant in the constellation Draco, this meteor shower is more discreet than events so far: only about 10 meteors can be seen per hour during its peak. It is also a short-lived event, taking place between October 6th and 10th.

Another important difference is that Draconids are best seen in the early evening rather than at dawn. The New Moon will make this celestial show easier to see!

  • October 13, at 00:27:35 – Crescent Moon
  • October 20 at 11:57:41 – Full Moon
  • October 21st and 22nd – Meteor shower…
