The full moon in July 2023 will be called the Buck Moon. It is also known as the Thunder Moon, Berry Moon, Salmon Moon, Feather Moulting Moon, and Raspberry Moon. The name Buck Moon comes from the fact that the antlers of male deer are in full growth at this time of year.
The Buck Moon will be a supermoon, which means that it will be slightly closer to Earth than usual. This makes it appear slightly larger and brighter in the sky. The Buck Supermoon will reach peak illumination at 7:39 AM Eastern Time on Monday, July 3. However, it will be visible in the night sky starting on Sunday, July 2.
If you are looking for a place to view the Buck Supermoon, try finding a spot with a clear view of the horizon. You may also want to bring binoculars or a telescope to get a closer look. The Buck Supermoon is a beautiful sight to behold, and it is sure to be a memorable experience.
