It's a great time of year to get out and enjoy everything New Jersey has to offer. The beach, in particular, is always a popular option for people near and far.

The Jersey Shore summer season is like none other. Not only do the crowds flock to the beaches and boardwalks during the hotter months, but evenings are just as popular.

And although you can't always predict the weather, you can plan your evenings with the hope skies will be clear. That, of course, holds true for your daytime plans as well.

But some evenings you might want to enjoy under the glow of the moon shining bright. And as we all know, a full moon in New Jersey can really light up the night sky.

Of course, you might also be itching for a night when only the stars are out and about. Those particular nights when the moon is around it's new phase keeping things nice and dark.

Or, just maybe, you're wondering if a lunar eclipse is in the cards for 2024. The good news with this one is yes, we will be having a lunar eclipse this summer in New Jersey.

So the burning question is, when? When are all the full moons, and when is that eclipse? Furthermore, when can we expect those starlit nights?
