July 14 – Full Moon, Super Moon
The Moon will be in a position relative to the Sun, so the entire surface of the Moon will be illuminated. This phase will take place at 1:38 a.m. (Vietnam time). The July full moon is also called the retirement moon by Native American tribes because during this time the deer’s antlers will begin to grow. This lunar season is also known as the Thunder Moon or the Straw Moon. This is also the second supermoon of 3 supermoons in 2022. The moon will be closest to Earth, so it will appear a little larger and brighter than usual.

July 29 – New Moon
The Moon will be on the same side of Earth as the Sun, so we won’t be able to see it in the night sky at all. This phase will take place at 12:55 a.m. (Vietnam time). This is a great time to observe other faint celestial objects such as galaxies and star clusters, as they will not be affected by moonlight.
July 28 and 29 – Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower
Delta Aquarids are a medium meteor shower and at their peak can reach up to 20 meteors per hour. The Delta Aquarids meteor shower is created from debris left behind by comets Marsden and Kracht. This meteor shower occurs every year from July 12 to August 23 and reaches its peak on the night of July 28 and early morning of August 29. In 2022, the new moon will create ideal conditions for observing the threshold of this meteor shower, especially after midnight and in dark places. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Aquarius, but can appear anywhere in the sky.
