August’s Moon, known as the “Sturgeon Moon” turns 100% full on the 15th at 8:29 a.m. ET. But how did it get that name?
The fishing tribes of North America are given credit for the naming of August’s Moon, since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, were most readily caught during this month.
A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze. It was also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon.
