1. Full Buck Moon
There’s going to be a full moon tonight, the seventh one in 2011. It’s also known as the Full Buck Moon, a Native American term, livescience.com reports, because it comes at the time of year when new antlers push out from the foreheads of buck deer. If you’ve ever read Cynthia Rylant’s Long Night Moon to your kids (a great pick!) you also know that July’s full moon has also been called “full thunder moon,” given the frequency of summer thundershowers.
