Full Moon Dominated Tuesday Night’s Bitterroot Sky
When the clouds allowed, the July Full Moon was the main attraction of the night sky Tuesday. The full moon occurred about 5 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time, but it didn't rise above the Sapphire Mountains until much later.
This month's full moon is called the Buck Moon for male deer, whose antlers are growing rapidly at this time. It's also called the Thunder Moon, which is also timely with the recent active thunderstorms we've had.
