On July 4, when the snowy month or the full moon in July rises in the sky, Skywatcher will invite guests. There will also be some lunar eclipses.
“Saturday, July 5, the full moon in July will rise after sunset, and then reach peak lighting on July 5 at 12:44 EST.” The Old Farmer’s Yearbook explains. “Looking southeast, it will rise to the horizon.”
The Old Farmer’s Yearbook explains that the big stag got its name because it happened when the big-headed antlers were “in full growth mode” throughout the year. Another name for Buck Moon is Thunderstorm Moon.

NASA pointed out that the moon will also appear in some penumbra. The space agency said that in the penumbral lunar eclipse, a part of the moon passes through the outside of the earth̵
NASA explained on its website: “The moon will be close enough to the opposite side of the sun to make its northern edge pass through part of the earth’s shadow. “Although it can be seen from the Americas, if there is no instrument, this dim part of the moon should be difficult or impossible to notice. From Friday night to Monday morning, the eclipse will appear around the eclipse for three days, This makes it a full moon weekend.”
Last month, global sky observers enjoyed the stunning June full moon or strawberry moon. The Strawberry Moon is also a penumbral lunar eclipse for aerial observers in Asia, Africa, Europe and Oceania.

However, the stag moon will not be as high as the strawberry moon in the sky. NASA explained on its website: “By 2020, the full moon in early July will be closer than the summer solstice, and the sky will be lower than the full moon in June.
The full moon in May, known as the Flower Moon, is the last super moon in 2020.
According to NASA, July is also a good time to see Venus and Mercury. The company explained on its website: “Wednesday morning, July 8, 2020, the brightest planet Venus will reach its greatest splendor.” “From the morning of July 16, 2020 (Thursday), Mercury will be in twilight. The light starts (at least in the Washington, DC area) above the horizon, making all five planets visible to the naked eye (if any) Mercury clearly visible on the horizon in the northeast, northeast, and Jupiter and Saturn clearly visible on the southwest horizon.”
