Here’s everything you should know about July’s lunar event, including when to see it – and why you can’t miss it.

Full Moon: June, 2024

The Full Moon is happening on 21 June 2024.

However, it’s not just a regular lunar event.

It’s called a Lunar Standstill, which allows us to see a greater view of the lunar event than we usually would.

This is a special Strawberry Moon, according to the website MoonGiant.com.

The next lunar event happens exactly one month later.

However, not everyone remembers the next lunar event. That’s why we’re here to tell you about it.

The Buck Moon is happening on 21 July, according to the website Astronomy.com.

That’s exactly one month after this lunar event.

However, not every lunar event works in this way.

Lunar cycles aren’t exactly the same every month.

August’s full moon is happening on 19 August 2024.

It’s also called the Sturgeon Moon, according to TimeandDate.com.

However, it’s also called the Lynx and Lightning Moon.

Naming every lunar event helps us to keep track and associates it with something that happens during a specific time of the year.
