July’s full moon is known as “Buck Moon”.
According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the full moon in July is known as the “buck moon” because the antlers of a goat are in full growth mode at this time of the year. Due to the spring thunderstorms, the moon is also known as the “thunder moon”.
Moon names come from the history of the Native Americans.
