If you missed this year's biggest and brightest supermoon, you should get another chance to check it out. 

A clear sky is forecasted for the local area on Thursday (July 14) night to see the Buck Moon, which will stick around until Friday morning.

The moon is named after male deer, as their antlers are in full growth mode at this time of the year. 

According to the Old Farmers Almanac, the moon is closer to earth than any other moon in 2022. 

Names for the moon vary by region -- other names from past July moons include Feather Moulting Moon, Berry Moon, Moon When the Chokecherries are Ripe, Month of the Ripe Corn Moon, and Raspberry Moon.
