Names of Full Moons

Old almanacs often give the traditional names for northern hemisphere Full Moons but they are rarely used today with the possible exception of Harvest Moon, the Full Moon nearest to the northern hemisphere autumn equinox and usually (but not always!) falling in the month of September. The following list is only approximate because a lunar month is shorter than a calendar month, causing the names to 'slide around' a little. And let's not forget about Blue Moons!
