Daily Postcard: Sturgeon Moon Over White Rock

Daily Postcard: The August Full Moon is at 96 percent past full Monday over White Rock and still very bright with surrounding clouds. August’s Full Moon was traditionally called the Sturgeon Moon because the giant sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this part of summer. Other names for include ‘Full Green Corn Moon’ signaling that the corn was nearly ready for harvest, ‘Wheat Cut Moon’, ‘Moon When All Things Ripen’ and ‘Blueberry Moon’. Source: Farmer’s Almanac.
