Tonight, Friday, July 23, the full moon rises after sunset, look towards the southeast to watch it rise above the horizon. It reaches its prime at 10:37 p.m.

The July full moon is known as any of the following:

• Full Buck Moon – because in July the antlers of male deer (bucks) are in full growth mode. Bucks shed and regrow their antlers each year, producing a larger and more impressive set as the years go by.

• 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.
