Full Sturgeon Moon

A full moon in August is called "sturgeon moon" ( Info from PACIFIC PRESS/GETTY) The full moon that will rise in the sky on 18 August 2016 is known as the "Full Sturgeon Moon". It may sound strange to associate Earth's natural satellite with a fish, but the origins of this tradition are ancient, and find their roots in native American cultures of the past. Ancient tribes of native Americans indeed gave poetic, colourful names to each full moon of the year. These denominations reflected the changes happening in their natural environment.
