When to see July’s full Buck Moon set to be the biggest and brightest Super Moon of 2022
On Wednesday, July 13, the Moon will orbit closer to Earth than any other full Moon this year.
The Moon will appear full on the days either side of its peak, but the best time to view it in the UK will be on Wednesday from 7.38pm, when it's at its closest.
With clear skies and warm weather it's worth going out and finding a clear view where you will be able to see the Moon as full and super as it is going to be this year. The best time will probably be after 9.30pm when the Moon should be more clearly visible.
The name Buck Moon comes from the Algonquin native Indian tribes of the US because it is the time of year when the new antlers of a buck deer grow.
According to the American Farmer's Almanac: "The full Moon in July is called the Buck Moon because the antlers of male deer (bucks) are in full-growth mode at this time. Bucks shed and regrow their antlers each year, producing a larger and more impressive set as the years go by.”
July's full Moon is also known as the Thunder Moon because thunderstorms are often frequent during this month.
Remember the Moon always rises in the east and sets in the west.
