I want to use Sky Safari or Stellarium to know when I will have a full moon in my viewing area.

Is there a way to find the dates and times when there will be a full moon at about 40 degrees above my western horizon?

Any other software able to do this?

 

Thanks

RC

In SkySafari, you can also just hit the tonight button (at least on SkySafari Plus), and it'll list when the moon rises, when it'll next be full, and when it will be a new moon too.

'Phases of the Moon' for Android works well

I know how to do it by advancing time, just looking for a shortcut that could give me time and date for the next couple of years. 
 

thanks for the replies.

Try this:

http://www.celestial...moonphases.html

 

If you know there's a full moon, it will always be in roughly the same position relative to the Sun (rising at sunset, setting at sunrise), so just look at the difference between sunset and when it's in the location you want to know about for any day.  Then for every day with a Full moon you'll know the time relative to the sunset time.

That will give you the date of the full moon.  If you need more accuracy, tap the Moon in the Tonight list to bring up Object Info for the Moon.  That has the next full moon down to the second.

You can simply Google Lunar Calendar Annual 2021 and get all the images you need.
