THE sky lights up at night when there is a full Moon – and there’s a great one coming up.
But when is it and what is it called? Here’s all you need to know…
What is the July 2021 Full Moon called?
THE next full moon — which is called a Buck Moon and believed to have a “spiritual meaning” — is going to be visible this week.
The moon, also known as Thunder Moon, Hay Moon, and Mead Moon, will be visible this Friday, July 23.
It should be a nice and bright Moon, as we recently had a Super Moon.
Spiritual mentor and law of attraction coach Esther McCann told Woman & Home Magazine that the Buck Moon is an ideal time to connect with nature.
McCann said: “I would recommend getting outdoors in the summer evening if you can to truly connect with nature in this beautiful season.
“Find somewhere quiet and feel free to go barefoot to connect to the earth.”
Why is it called the Buck Moon?
That’s the traditional name for the seventh full Moon of the year, and doesn’t mean anything in particular about its shape, size or colour.
When will the Buck Moon rise?
According to Nasa, the full moon will appear opposite the sun at 10.37pm ET for the Americas.
“The Moon will appear full for about three days around the peak of the full Moon, from Thursday evening through Sunday morning,” scientists said.
On Friday, July 23, the moon will rise at 9:16pm in London.
Meanwhile, in the moon will rise at 8:33pm in New York and 8:15pm in Los Angeles, Forbes reports.
