This month’s full moon (Aug. 20), is not just a Blue Moon — it’s also the Full Sturgeon Moon, the Full Red Moon, the Green Corn Moon and the Grain Moon..
The annual August full moon has come to be known as the Full Sturgeon Moon, because the large fish called sturgeon can most easily be caught at this time of year. 🐟 Another name for this month’s full moon is the Full Red Moon, because the weather and atmospheric conditions during this season can often make the moon look reddish when it rises through a haze.
And finally, because crops grow tall at this time of year, this month’s moon is sometimes called the Green Corn Moon or the Grain Moon. 🌽 The next Blue Moon isn’t set to occur until 2015. #fullmoon #bluemoon #moon #luna #tuscany #capalbio #toscana #italia #italy #FullSturgeonMoon #FullRedMoon #GreenCornMoon #GrainMoon (at Capalbio)
