I'm looking for the dates of the phases of the Moon. Where can I find them?

Our website currently contains a lunar phase table from 2021 to 2026. Outside this period, you can get the phases of the Moon on the US Naval Observatory (between 1700 and 2100).

Realize, though, that this server gives the date and hour in universal time (UT). To get Eastern Standard Time (EST), you must subtract five hours, thereby possibly changing the date. For example, January 4 at 3:12 UT equals January 3 at 22:12 EST.
