Snapping the full moon was not easy this month. This was why.
Some tribes named this moon The Full Red Moon. This is because when it first rises, it is red and hazy. I was able to capture this effect!
Once it got rather high, it was not red anymore. The name most well known for the August Moon is the Full Sturgeon Moon. This is because fishing tribes of the Great Lakes and other areas caught mostly sturgeon in August.
“Simon said, “Master, we’ve been fishing hard all night and haven’t caught even a minnow. But if you say so, I’ll let out the nets.” It was no sooner said than done—a huge haul of fish, straining the nets past capacity.”
