(Belo affiliate) --  Skies should be clear on Monday night so we will be able to see another gorgeous "super moon."

EarthSky says astronomers will call this moon the perigee moon - the moon's closest point to Earth for this monthly orbit - but everyone else will call it a super moon.

The full moon falls Monday at 11:16 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time, one day after July’s lunar perigee.

This super moon won’t be as “super” as the supermoon in June. Skygazers took some incredible photos of last month's super moon.

EarthSky says in North America, the July full moon is often called the Buck Moon, Thunder Moon or Hay Moon because at this time of year, buck deer grow velvety antlers, thunderstorms rage and farmers put hay into their barns.

Remember to post your super moon pictures on Facebook or send them to yourphotos@whas11.com
