Buck Moon over Dubrovnik Buck Moon over Dubrovnik Mark Thomas

Golden moon over Dubrovnik last night – July Buck Moon

Written by  Jul 24, 2021

It was a full moon last night, and not only a full moon but also a so called Buck Moon. The night sky over Dubrovnik turned a rather eerie shade of orange as the full moon rose slowly. This orange coloured moon lasted for a couple of hours last night at dusk and then again this morning as the sun set.

Curiously, the Buck Moon will be a different colour depending on where you are in the world you are. But in Dubrovnik it looked like the world’s largest mandarin!

The reason for the Buck Moon appearing is due to the sun, earth and moon being in perfect alignment, but as the moon is roughly five degrees off the plan of earth's orbit, the light from the sun will fall fully on the moon's side facing earth.
