The biggest Supermoon of the year will be visible tomorrow night, and here’s what you need to know

On Wednesday, 13 July, the moon will reach its closest point to the Earth, and this Super 'Buck' Moon will be visible on the Irish horizon.

Who doesn’t love an exciting celestial event?

On Wednesday, 13 July at 10am Irish time, the moon will arrive at its closest point to the Earth for 2022, a perigee distance of 357,264 kilometres away for a the Super ‘Buck’ Moon.

A little under a month since June’s beautiful Super ‘Strawberry’ Moon, and just about a month until the final Supermoon of the year in August, you’re not going to want to miss a chance to see the biggest and brightest moon appearance of the year.

According to the old Farmer’s Almanac, the ‘Buck’ Moon is unique because it rises after sunset, and makes its appearance at a lower point in the sky, much closer to the horizon than we would expect.

Taking its name from the antlers of male deer — which are shed and regrown with each passing year — the ‘Buck’ Moon appears just as they’re in full growth mode. Alternative names for this month’s moon include Feather Moulting Moon, Salmon Moon, and Berry Moon.

This Supermoon could be up to 30% brighter than the usual, and up to 14% larger than we’re used to, to make sure to cast your eyes upwards and soak it all in!
