The July full moon will be its fullest in the early morning of Sunday, July 9 at 12:08 a.m.

The July moon is called the “full buck moon” because it happens during the time of the year during which buck’s antlers are growing in, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.

The July moon sometimes also is referred to as the thunder moon because there tend to be numerous thunderstorms during this time of the year.

Full Buck Moon Still Big and Beautiful

full buck moonTonight, Tuesday, July 19, the full moon rises to its prime at 6:57 p.m.

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.

event_127316082Tonight’s magnificent full moon is known as the Buck Moon, marking the time of year when young deer begin to sprout antlers.

As the first of two full moons this month, it also is known as a thunder moon, because July is known for its intense afternoon rain storms.

The second full moon this month, on July 31 will be the blue moon (and thunder moon).

The Blue Moon designation for the second full moon in a calendar month is fairly new. Previously blue moons were the third of four blue moons in a single season.

The last blue moon occurred three years ago, when both two full moons appeared in both September and August 2012.

Wow, Look At That Full Buck Moon!

Hannah Babbitz Full MoonThe moon looks FULL tonight, but the actual July full moon is on July 12 (tomorrow).

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.

According to NASA, tomorrow’s full moon also is a Super Moon, which occurs because the Moon is in an elliptical orbit around the Earth.
“When the Moon is closest, it is at its orbital perigee, which is why a Super Moon is also known as a Perigee Moon, 222,611 miles away,” according to NASA. This is the first in a trio of “super moons” this year the others will be in August and September.

Tomorrow’s full moon is about 30,000 miles closer than the moon at its farthest distance in 2014.

A full moon at its closest point to Earth definitely will be big and bright. But don’t expect the monster moon like what we saw in March 2011. Tomorrow’s moon won’t look  different than a “normal” full moon and will not have any readily observable effect on our planet except perhaps slightly higher tides.
The largest supermoon of the year will be on August 10, when the moon will be another 863 miles closer than tomorrow.
The Brevard Times reports that low hanging moons near the horizon appear larger to humans. So the Super Moon will appear biggest to the naked eye on the U.S east coast during and just after the moonrise around 8:30 p.m. on July 12.
I suggest watching it from the West Haven beach around Jimmy’s Restaurant, it’s a great spot with no obstructions.
