Emacs can tell you the dates and times of the phases of the moon (new
moon, first quarter, full moon, last quarter), if floating point is
List, in another window, the dates and times for all the quarters
of the moon for the three-month period shown in the calendar window
List dates and times of the quarters of the moon for three months
around today's date in another window.
Use the `M' command to display a separate buffer of the phases of
the moon for the current three-month range. The dates and times listed
are accurate to within a few minutes.
You can display the list of the phases of the moon for the current
month and the preceding and succeeding months even if you don't have a
calendar window. Use the command `M-x phases-of-moon'. If you want
the phases of the moon centered around a different month, use `C-u M-x
phases-of-moon' and type the month and year.
The dates and times given for the phases of the moon are given in
local time (corrected for daylight savings, when appropriate); but if
the variable `calendar-time-zone' is void, Universal Time (the
Greenwich time zone) is used. Note: Daylight Savings
