July’s full Buck Moon appears in the sky TONIGHT

If you want to see the next full moon you’ll want to look up tonight: Friday, July 23rd.

Called the buck moon and the thunder moon, July’s full moon will appear opposite the sun in Earth-based longitude at 10:37 p.m ET, according to NASA.

The moon will appear full now through Sunday morning. The Maine Farmer’s Almanac says this full moon was named by Algonquin tribes in the Northeast for the period when new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads.

It’s also known as the thunder moon due to the season’s frequent thunderstorms.
