It’s the the second supermoon of the year, here’s how you can see it in the UK.
The Buck Moon will be visible tonight on Wednesday 13 July 2022 in the UK.
On Monday 11 July, the Moon passed 3° north of Antares, the brightest star in the constellation of Scorpio.
On 15 July, the Moon will pass 4.1° south of Saturn, which is currently nestled in the constellation Capricorn.
The Buck Moon this year will reach peak brightness at 6:38pm, in the early evening of tonight, Wednesday 13 June.
As this is still during daylight hours, and before the Moon has risen from our point of view in the UK, the best time to see the Buck Moon will be in the evening of 13 June, just after moonrise at 9:47pm, while the Moon is still low on the horizon.
If you can, get outside around 10pm tonight, on Wednesday 13 June, and enjoy the warm summer evening watching the Moon rise.
The full Moon in July is called the Buck Moon because the antlers of male deer (bucks) are in full-growth mode at this time. Bucks shed and regrow their antlers each year, producing a larger and more impressive set as the years go by.
