The Sturgeon Moon is the full moon in August.
It is named after the sturgeon, a large fish that is found in many rivers and lakes in North America. The sturgeon is an important food source for many Native American tribes, and the full moon in August was a time when they would gather to fish sturgeon.
It is also known by other names, such as the Corn Moon, the Grain Moon, and the Red Moon. The Corn Moon is named for the late summer harvest when corn and other grains are ripe. The Grain Moon is named for the same reason, and the Red Moon is named for the reddish hue that the moon can sometimes take on in August.
This year, the Sturgeon Moon is a supermoon, which means that it is closer to Earth than usual. This will make the moon appear larger and brighter than usual. The supermoon will be visible on August 1, 2023.
