Buck Moon

Supermoon ~ Man in the Moon

Buck Moon Mousepad

The full moon in July is often referred to as the Buck Moon because it occurs at the time of year when new antlers push out of the foreheads on buck deer coated with velvety fur.

This full moon is also referred to as Thunder Moon because of the frequency of summer thunder storms, or Hay Moon for the first hay crop of the season.

Buddhists refer to the May full moon as Buddha Esala Poya, while Hindus call it Guru Purnima

Man in the Moon

Look at what's rising: Luna, Selene, man in the Moon.

Much of the universe, as we know it, is strange and distant, full of lifeless orbs and wild cataclysms and dark voids. We know little about the quasars and nebulae and supernovae of outer space. Through our telescopes we peer at stars and planets and galaxies, but how well do we really know them? We can only see what we can see.

The moon is different. It is closer to us than any other heavenly object, both physically and imaginatively. It has been part of our stories and dreams since the dawn of time. It's the stuff of nursery rhymes.

Long before our kind walked on the moon we traversed its mountains and plains in our imaginations a million times or more. We named its dark lava flows and its craters and its peaks. We'd visited the Sea of Tranquility for centuries before our spaceship touched down.

Supermoon is a phenomenon in which the Moon is full and at perigee, or closest to the Earth in its orbit at the same time. This makes the Moon appear especially large in the night sky. The Buck Moon will be a supermoon in 2015.
