August Full Moon - Sturgeon And Blue

I'm running behind this month!  Last night was August's Sturgeon Moon, so named because the northern tribes were able to catch sturgeon in the Great Lakes most easily during this time of year.




Luckily for me and my tardiness, August has two full moons this year.  On the 31st, we'll have a Blue Moon!




Here's a link to an explanation of the Blue Moon and how we came to use the phrase:
