Full Buck Moon

July 2019 is notable because it will have two new Moons: the first rose on July 2 and the second rises on July 31.

July 16th is the Full Buck Moon. At this time, a buck’s antlers are in full growth mode. This full Moon was also known as the Thunder Moon because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month.
