Sturgeon Moon

August

The full moon in August is often referred to as the Sturgeon Moon because it occurs at the time of year when the sturgeon of the Great Lakes are most readily caught.

It has also been dubbed the Green Corn Moon, Grain Moon and the Full Red Moon. Buddhists refer to the August full moon as Nikini Poya, while Hindus call it Narali Poornima.


Man in the Moon

Look at what's rising: Luna, Selene, man in the Moon.

Much of the universe, as we know it, is strange and distant, full of lifeless orbs and wild cataclysms and dark voids. We know little about the quasars and nebulae and supernovae of outer space. Through our telescopes we peer at stars and planets and galaxies, but how well do we really know them? We can only see what we can see.
 



The moon is different. It is closer to us than any other heavenly object, both physically and imaginatively. It has been part of our stories and dreams since the dawn of time. It's the stuff of nursery rhymes.

Supermoon

Supermoon is a phenomenon in which the Moon is full and at perigee, or closest to the Earth in its orbit at the same time. This makes the Moon appear especially large in the night sky. The Sturgeon Moon was a supermoon in 2015.
