Full Sturgeon Moon – August 24. 2010
Fshing tribes of long ago are given credit for the naming of this 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.
If you have not yet seen it, take a look tonight or tomorrow night, August 24th. 2010.
In August 2010, you will also find Mars every evening low in the west after the sun goes down. Mars appears in Earth's sky as a reddish dot of light.You will have no trouble knowing which is the moon and which is Mars, no matter that some false info is out there telling you that Mars will look as large as the moon.
