Beware of the Thunder Moon rising up in the night sky tonight

Sky watchers and enthusiasts of the weird and wonderful world of astrology alike should rejoice over the next two nights, as the Thunder Moon will shine brightly on the night sky.

July’s full moon is known in certain cultures as Thunder Moon. It takes its name from old Native American tribes, which used the Moon to mark the beginning and the end of the seasons. July is traditionally a month when severe thunderstorms occur across the American plains, hence the name. Some tribes would refer to it as the Buck Moon, because it is the season when buck’s antlers experience a growth spurt.

For those more adept to astrological portents, the Moon is currently situated in the constellation Sagittarius. The full moon will appear just below Aquila (The Eagle).

Earth’s satellite will appear full over the next three nights.
