Buck Moon: This week, the July supermoon will be visible in the sky brighter than usual

On July 2, the Full Buck supermoon rises over Whitley Bay's St. Mary's Lighthouse

On Monday night, the Moon will have us looking up at the sky because it appears brighter and larger than usual.

The full Moon in July, dubbed a "Buck Moon," will be closer to Earth than usual.

According to NASA, the Moon will appear full for up to three days when it rises in the UK at about 22:14 BST.   .

Early in the evening will be the best time to view the supermoon event in England, Wales, southern Scotland, and Northern Ireland.

Visibility may decrease as the night goes on because the skies over much of central Scotland are cloudy and wet.

Southern parts of the UK will also experience a cloud and rain area after midnight.

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the Moon was at its brightest on Monday at 12:39 BST (07:39 Eastern Time).

The Buck Moon, according to The Almanac, which has been publishing astronomical data for centuries, will orbit the Earth more closely than previous full moons this year.

According to the article, the full Moon in August will be the only super moon this year that will be closer to Earth.

Because male deer antlers are fully developing in July, according to the Royal Observatory, the full Moon in July was given the Native American name Buck Moon. Antlers are shed and grown again by bucks.

Here are some images of the Buck Moon taken on Monday all over the world:.
