I remember all the old nights with my grandmother where I love to listen to the stories of legends, love, battels, success, mythology, and much more. And when some times when granny was out of stories she started building some fictional characters and made me content with her own short stories. But three things were always the same. Me as story listener, my granny as a storyteller, and the big moon surrounded by stars. 

Though I always wonder the mystery behind the beautiful round ball. And the night becomes even special when it’s a full moon. So beautiful, so elegant, so appealing. 

Even being a science student, and knowing the suspicious science and Fact behind this. I had grown up with Talking to the moon. This somewhere Help me to confess my Feeling with the Someone. Whom I can trust and keep Faith on. 

Through this, all sounds a bit poetic. 

Let’s come to the point for which you came here. 

Why Buck Moon

The Full Moon in July is the Buck Moon, named after the new antlers that emerge from a buck’s forehead around this time of the year. The full moon is also called Thunder Moon, Hay Moon, and Wort Moon.

There are stories of Male deer or buck that they shed their antlers and grow new ones every year. There are several different species of deer in the US and Europe, where this traditional Full Moon name originated. For example the caribou and the moose.

Though thunder moon is called because thunderstorms occur during this period of the month. July is considered one of the important months in moon history.

Creates the wonder in the Ancient Period

Do you know? In ancient times, it was common to track the changing seasons by following the Lunar period rather than the solar year, which the 1 year in our modern era calendars is based on.

Wow, Penumbral eclipse of the moon in July! 

You Might aware About eclipse of the moon can only happen at the full moon, when all the sun, Earth and moon line up in space, with Earth in the middle. At such times, Earth’s shadow falls on the moon, creating a lunar eclipse. Generally, Lunar eclipses happen twice to thrice in a year.  There are three kinds of lunar eclipses: total, partial, and penumbral.

In a total eclipse of the moon, the inner part of Earth’s shadow, called the umbra falls on the moon’s face. At mid-eclipse, the entire moon is in shadow, which may appear blood red.

In a partial lunar eclipse, the umbra takes a bite out of only a fraction of the moon. The dark bite grows larger and then recedes, never reaching the total phase.

In a penumbral lunar eclipse, only the more diffuse outer shadow of Earth – called penumbra – falls on the moon’s face. This kind of lunar eclipse is much more subtle and much more difficult to observe than either a total or partial eclipse of the moon. There is never a dark bite taken out of the moon, as in a partial eclipse. The eclipse never progresses to reach the dramatic minutes of totality. At best, at mid-eclipse, very observant people will notice a dark shading on the moon’s face. Others will look and notice nothing at all.

There are a number of stories linked with the Eclipse and its occurrence. Though a mythology lover, I believed in some.
