Deer Moon, when and where to see it

The Deer Moon is a celestial spectacle that you cannot miss.

You have to be very alert to witness them because each one is unique in its kind and it can take a long time for them to happen again. 

The Deer Moon bears this name because during this season male deer grow new antlers or horns, as it is popularly known.

What other names does the Stag Moon have?

On the other hand, according to NASA, some communities in the United States also call this phenomenon the Thunder Moon, as a consequence of the storm season, or the Salmon Moon, because the schools of salmon swim faster and deeper during the full moons, as they illuminate your path.

According to the space agency, farmers know it as Hay Moon, as this plant is harvested and collected during the summer and stored for the winter months.

You will be interested to know that the deer moon is considered a supermoon. Are you wondering what that is? A supermoon is a full moon that coincides with its closest approach to planet Earth. And, it happens that while this event appears, other phenomena also occur at the same time.

As in the case of the Deer Moon, which is that our natural satellite will be 14% larger and 30% brighter.

It can be seen at its closest point to Earth on Wednesday, July 13 at 4:06 am Mexico City time. And, according to NASA, this event will last until July 15.

It can be observed without any type of special device, but you must take into account the weather conditions because the less cloudy and polluted the sky is, the better the view will be.
