The Full Thunder Moon in all its astrological glory will be rising this week.
Star gazers can expect the full moon to have an extra reddish and orange hue due to the recent damaging wildfires, smoke, and ash.
While the peak of the full moon will occur this Friday, July 23rd, this month’s full moon will likely appear full with a deep red or orange color beginning Thursday evening up until Sunday evening.
Introduced as the ‘thunder moon, this full moon gets its name from the loud summer storms that briefly light up the night sky which rock the Earth.
However, this full moon also answers to a second name that is commonly associated with the rise of this full moon; also known as the Full Buck Moon, the name refers to the white-tailed deers who develop their antlers for the year.
Individuals can expect the full thunder moon to peak at 10:37 p.m., Eastern Standard Time this Friday, July 23rd!
