The clouds are thinning out and with the full moon tonight, it will be a bright night.

The "Sturgeon Moon" as it is known was also met with a partial eclipse as it passed through the earth's shadow.

Why is a Full Moon in August called a Sturgeon Moon? This is named after sturgeon fish, which is easy to catch during this time of the year.

In August, they knew the spindle-shaped sturgeon would be plentiful in the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain, hence, August's full moon is the sturgeon moon.

FULL RED MOON The moon often will rise red this month due to the summertime haze.

There will be a Full Moon tonight on Monday, August 7, 2017.

"For those planning a stroll along the beach to watch the Full Moon, the Full Moon brings along with it a 4'0" high tide that will occur around 8:37 p.m.

These moon names are associated with seasonal occurrences that happen in August.

FULL FRUIT MOON Fruit from the trees begins to be harvested during August.
