August’s full Sturgeon Moon reaches its peak on Monday, August 3, 2020.

August’s full Moon was traditionally called the Sturgeon Moon because the giant sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this part of summer.

Other names for this Full Moon include ”Full Green Corn Moon,” signaling that the corn was nearly ready for harvest, “Wheat Cut Moon,” “Moon When All Things Ripen,” and ”Blueberry Moon.”

These prehistoric-looking fish have been traced back to around 136 million years ago and many people call them “living fossils.”

They can live up to 150 years!

They have evolved in size from the size of a bass to monster sturgeon as big as a Volkswagen.

The word “sturgeon” means “the stirrer,” which is what this giant fish does when it is looking for food; it stirs up the mud and silt on river and lake bottoms.
