Event Description

This month we have a Supermoon, a Blue Moon, and it’s the Sturgeon Full Moon!

A supermoon is when the moon is closest to earth while the full moon appears, making the moon appear larger and brighter in the sky.
A blue moon is when we have a second full moon in a month.

The sturgeon moon was the name for the late summer full moon when lake sturgeon are found in the Great Lakes.
