Полнолуние в Нью-Йорке  - Sputnik International
The full moon occurs when the Earth's only natural satellite appears on the planet's side opposite to the Sun. This one, when seen from New York City, will be the first full moon of the summer.

Night skies over New York City can be seen illuminated by a full moon, in the United States referred to as a 'buck' moon. 

The annual lunar event is known as 'buck' as it occurs in the season of early summer when the new antlers of buck deer push out from their skulls.

For the first time this summer, the Earth's only natural satellite will be located on the opposite side of the planet to the sun.
