Another supermoon rises with July’s ‘Buck Moon’

July’s full moon will once again be a supermoon, reaching its perigee or closest point to our planet on July 13.

The moon will be relatively close to Earth in its slightly elliptical orbit, making it appear just slightly bigger and brighter than usual. The “Buck Moon” or “Thunder Moon,” will officially reach its peak on July 13, at 2:37 p.m. EDT (opens in new tab)(1837 GMT), according to timeanddate.com. While definitions of “supermoon” vary, NASA eclipse watcher Fred Espenak counts July’s full moon as the third of four supermoons in a row.
