The Moon in Minecraft moves across the sky during night, and it is then replaced by the Sun in the day time.

Overview

Moonphasemc

All the moon phases in Minecraft.

A full day/night cycle in Minecraft is about 20 minutes, and the Moon is out for about 7 minutes. The Clock can be used to show the Sun and Moon's positions. The movement of the moon in Minecraft is similar to the earth's day/night cycle, and it is about the same size. Like Earth's moon, it follows a cycle of 8 phases:

  • New moon
  • Waxing Crescent
  • First Quarter
  • Waxing Gibbous
  • Full Moon
  • Waning Gibbous
  • Third Quarter
  • Waning Crescent

Trivia

  • The phase of the moon affects:
    • Slime spawning and size
    • Mobs spawning with armor and weapons
    • Mob armor/weapons being enchanted
    • Zombies breaking down doors, their follow range, max HP, and spawning other zombies
    • Chance for mobs to pick up dropped items
    • Spiders having status effects
    • Lightning spawning a Skeleton Trap Horse
  • As Minecraft consists of blocks, the Moon is square as with the Sun.
  • The Minecraft moon's phases change each day, as opposed to Earth's moon, which changes every 3–4 days.
