August 14 Full Moon

August 14 Full Moon

The Sturgeon Moon 2019, or the full moon for the month of August this year, is all set to rise later this week. It will peak when its Earth facing side is fully lit up by the Sun……The moon for the eight month of the year is called Sturgeon Moon because of the great number of this monster freshwater sturgeon fish found in lakes and rivers in North America. In fact, every full moon for the 12 months of the year, have a name attached to it, signifying changing seasons. https://www.space.com/33768-august-full-moon.html

What makes the Full Moon »

Since the time of our earliest ancestors, mankind has used the motions of the heavenly bodies to mark time and keep the seasons. The annual movement of the Sun being perhaps the most important as relating to seasons for harvest, planting, and the long dark nights of Winter. The Moon however has played no less a role to our time keeping efforts, and the word “month” is even derived from the word for Moon, with a month being the time period between one New Moon and the next. 

What is a New Moon? From the standpoint of an observer on Earth, the moon goes through a very predictable periodic cycle. Each day, the moon appears to change shape! For a short time the moon is dark and cannot be seen, we call this “New Moon” and it is both the birth and death of the lunar cycle. Starting as a tiny sliver of light at first, it grows (waxes) daily as more and more of the moon becomes brighter until finally, the moon is fully lit and appears as a great round orb shining down. This is called Full Moon, and many cultures around the world have names for the Full Moons that occur throughout the year, such as Harvest Moon, or the Cold Moon. After the Moon is full, it begins to wane each day as the bright round moon is reduced again to a tiny sliver of light and finally to disappear to begin the cycle all over again. https://www.moongiant.com/fullmoons/2019/
