Will you be going out to see the first supermoon of the year?

Here is everything you need to know about the Buck supermoon on Monday, July 3.

What is a supermoon?

Supermoons are a combination of a lunar perigee (when the moon is closest to the earth) and a full moon.

They can appear about 7pc bigger and 15pc brighter

How to see the supermoon?

The moon is due to rise in the east at 9.16pm on July 2, peaking at 12.38am.

It is then due to set in the west at 3.40am on July 3.

Spectators won't need anything other than themselves to enjoy the supermoon, though binoculars may give a good close-up look.

It will appear the largest near the horizon.

Don't fret if you miss the full moon on the day. It will remain large for the rest of the week.

July's moon

July's full moon is called the Buck Moon.

This moon gets its name from the male deer whose antlers are in full growth mode at this time.

Other names for the July full moon are the Thunder Moon and the Berry Moon

The next stages of this month's moon will be the last quarter on July 10, a new moon on July 17 and the first quarter on July 25.
