Full Buck Moon on 4th July 2020.
July’s Full Moon is known as the Full Buck Moon (around July the new antlers of the bucks start to grow), the Thunder Moon, the Full Hay Moon or the Full Wort Moon.
Buck Moon penumbral eclipse was visible in North and South America, in western Africa, southwestern Europe and in New Zealand. The Moon was less bright than usual. During a penumbral eclipse Moon passes into Earth’s outer shadow (penumbra). A total lunar eclipse occurs when Moon enters the shadow of the Earth (umbra).
