Moon Phase Google Calendar Featured

Google Calendar is the go-to Calendar app for most people organizing their lives online. While most of our interactions involve putting in appointments and reminders, you can display any number of different calendars in Google Calendar, including a moon phases or lunar calendar, which keeps you updated on the phases of the moon throughout the year.

So here we’re going to quickly show you how to display the lunar calendar built into Google Calendar.

First, open up your Google Calendar, then click the cog icon -> Settings.
