The Native Americans’ name for the full moon in August is the Sturgeon Moon, because this is the season when the sturgeon fish are plentiful. (This information is from my handy Farmer’s Almanac, thanks to Mom and Sarah every year! You can find all the full moon names online at their website too: Farmer’s Almanac Full Moon Names.)
On Tuesday night, I looked up to see a very bright cloud, and realised that the moon was behind it. Here are my (not brill) photos of the full Sturgeon moon rising from behind the cloud:
The whole thing took about a minute. I hope the photos give you some idea of what a beautiful sight it was.
