The Buck Moon

Hi, folks. The July full moon, scheduled to be in your skies tomorrow night, is called the Buck Moon, after Buck Henry, the comedian and screenwriter of “The Graduate,” who is often thought of as the first person to see it. It’s a fact! Now, tell a friend! Yeah, a little more coffee… Actually, it’s this time of year, at least in the northern hemisphere, when bucks — adult male deer — start growing their antlers. This time around, the moon will be in a quiet and otherwise dark part of the sky between the constellations Sagittarius and Capricornus. So, it should make for a beautiful sight with a beer and some friends, considering how thick and iffy the skies can be this time of year. Enjoy, everyone!
