This full moon lighting up the Mighty Mississippi is also known as a Full Buck Moon. Minnesota State Parks and Trails posted on Facebook that it’s named for the antlers that bucks are beginning to grow. It’s also sometimes called the Thunder Moon or the Hay Moon. The latter named for farmers who getting their hay cut and inside before those storms.
