CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Welcome the "Full Buck moon" with a drum circle.

According to NASA,in July, the full moon is nicknamed "Buck Moon" or "Thunder moon" because of reasons associated with Native American tribes.

"According to this almanac, as the full Moon in July and the first full Moon of Summer, the Algonquin tribes in what is now the Eastern USA called this full Moon the Buck Moon," NASA's website says, "Early Summer is normally when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. They also called this the Thunder Moon because of early Summer's frequent thunderstorms."

Communitea has invited everyone to join them in celebrating July's Buck moon with a drum circle.

The drum circle will be led by Elizabeth Pena this Saturday from 7 pm to 10 pm at Communitea.

"Join Elizabeth Pena in hosting this month's Full Moon with a drum circle where you meet with your community to drum, dance and cleanse the old and invite the new," their event page says.

Communitea has asked for people to bring firewood if they have it.
