A full moon in August is sometimes called a Sturgeon Moon. It was named so by some Native Peoples because sturgeon were most easily caught in August.
Glenn Funk wrote, "At the monthly Moon Tour at the Point Arena Lighthouse, this hazy Sturgeon Moon tried valiantly to outshine the tower’s floodlight and, depending on the shifting fog layer, may have succeeded…at times.”
