A buck moon is another name for it because it occurs in July. You won't find anything resembling a buck on the surface of the moon

thus the name doesn't stem from how it looks. Instead, it alludes to an occurrence in the natural world.

What is a supermoon?

Another factor distinguishes this specific buck moon as a supermoon. 

According to NASA, supermoons are defined as full moons that occur at the same time as the Moon's perigee, or closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit.

"The Moon reaches both its perigee, approximately 226,000 miles (363,300 km) from Earth, and its farthest point, or apogee, around 251,000 miles (405,500 km) from Earth

What to look for

According to NASA, supermoons generally appear 17 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than when the moon is closest to Earth.

Supermoons are also a little bit larger and brighter than the majority of full moons. 

Binoculars may provide you with a better view because just because something is bigger and brighter doesn't necessarily mean you can see it without assistance.

The moonrise and moonset will be the finest periods to see the buck moon. Here, you may find the times in your area.
