There are 12 Full Moons in 2016 – one in each month of the year. So, we don’t have a Blue Moon (an extra moon in a month, when a year which normally has 12 moons has 13 instead, like happened on July 2nd and July 31st 2015).

However, it may be considered Blue Moon the Full Moon that take place on May 21st, because it is the third full moon in a season of four full moons (the term „season“ referring here to astronomical rather than equal calendar seasons).

There are, also, two lunar eclipses in 2016: on March 23rd and on September 16th.
