Is it a Full Moon tonight?
The next full moon — which is called a Buck Moon and believed to have a “spiritual meaning” — is going to be visible this week.
The moon, also known as Thunder Moon, Hay Moon, and Mead Moon, will be visible this Saturday, July 24 after its first appearance last night.
Top tips to see the Buck Moon?
It should be a nice and bright Moon, as we recently had a Super Moon.
According to Nasa, the full moon appeared opposite the sun at 10.37pm ET for the Americas last night.
“The Moon will appear full for about three days around the peak of the full Moon, from Thursday evening through Sunday morning,” scientists said.
On Friday, July 23, the moon rose at 9:16pm in London and began setting at 3.36am.
But don’t worry if you missed it in the early hours last night, as it will make another appearance this evening!
Meanwhile, the moon rose at 8:33pm in New York and 8:15pm in Los Angeles, Forbes reports.
Spiritual mentor and law of attraction coach Esther McCann told Woman & Home Magazine that the Buck Moon is an ideal time to connect with the natural world.
McCann said: “I would recommend getting outdoors in the summer evening if you can to truly connect with nature in this beautiful season.
“Find somewhere quiet and feel free to go barefoot to connect to the earth.”
