Celebrating July’s Thunder Moon . . .

July 2013 Full Thunder Moon - copyright - michaela medina harlow - thegardenerseden.comJuly’s Long Daylight Hours and Dramatic Skies Make for Spectacular Moon Viewing 

Be sure to watch for tonight’s full, Thunder Moon when it rises at  8:03 pm ET. The Thunder Moon is also commonly called the Buck Moon, and with July’s long days and dramatic skies, this month’s moonrise is often a spectacular show. The moon is 100% illuminated at 2:16 pm ET today, July 22, 2013. However our lovely celestial neighbor —pictured above— appeared completely gorgeous last night, rising through the blushing indigo cloud line. With a chorus of woodland thrush serenading in the surrounding forest, I can’t imagine a better way to spend a summer evening than watching the Thunder Moonrise.

    Hi Michaela, She was indeed a beauty last night, well actually, the night before, but still a lovely glow of a night light last night in spite of the hazy clouds which were in the way; )

    Hi Deb, It’s good to hear from you! Yes, I’ve really been enjoying the night sky this month —especially the moon. I hope you are having a lovely summer… Seems to be flying by so quickly this year. x M
