Behold, the Moon

July's full moon is visible tonight.

Sometimes, I consult the Farmer's Almanac because it, usually, delights me:

The Full Buck Moon - July

July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time. Another name for this month's Moon was the Full Hay Moon.


You really do learn something new everyday.
