The July full moon is known as any of the following:
• Full Buck Moon – because in July the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur.
• Full Thunder Moon – because thunderstorms are most frequent during this time.
Another name for this month’s Moon was the Full Hay Moon, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
Tomorrow’s full moon is about 30,000 miles closer than the moon at its farthest distance in 2014.
