What day will the summer solstice and full moon coincide? As far as I know the next time will be in 2016. I would like to know what day.

  • $\begingroup$ almanac.com/content/full-moon-winter-solstice Last occurred in 1986.According to the article, it occurs approximately every 19yrs. $\endgroup$ – user13070 Jun 5 '16 at 15:20

The Summer Solstice in 2016 will occur at 22:34 UT on the 20th June, and the full moon will occur at 11:02 UT on that day (but since they are 12 hours apart that won't be on the same day everywhere).
