Did you see the moon last night?
The annual spectacle of what is best known as the ‘Buck Moon’ was — once again — stunning.
July’s full moon, also known by other nicknames according to different cultures including Hay Moon, Mead Moon, Rose Moon, Elk Moon and Summer Moon, reached its peak on Friday, July 23.
In northern regions, it’s also called the Thunder Moon because it is accompanied generally by summer storms.
If you missed Friday’s magical show, the full moon will be visible until Sunday, according to NASA.
For many sky gazers, the July Buck Moon is not just beautiful but also carries powerful lunar vibes and special spiritual meaning as it appears surrounded by the haze of the summer in its orange-and-yellow glow.
Its best-known name, Buck Moon, relates to the fact that the antlers of male deer reach their peak of growth around this time in July.
For believers in astrology, this full moon is a source of energy and relates to the abundance and ripeness of summer and to a time of unique personal development.
From a less mystical, scientific perspective, the source of the special luminous display of July’s full moon is its perfect alignment with the sun and earth as the sun’s light shines fully on the side of the moon facing earth.
According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, it was at this time on July 20, 1969, that Neil Armstrong became the first person to step foot on the Moon and planted the U.S. flag in its rocky soil.
