August's Full Sturgeon Moon Empty August's Full Sturgeon Moon

August’s full Sturgeon Moon reaches its peak on Sunday, August 22, 2021.

August’s full Moon will first appear on the night of Saturday, August 21, before reaching peak illumination at 8:02 A.M. Eastern Time on Sunday, August 22.

On either of these nights, look toward the southeast after sunset to catch a glimpse of the Sturgeon Moon rising.

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.

Flying Up Moon is a Cree term describing the time when young birds are finally ready to take the leap and learn to fly.

Corn Moon (Algonquin, Ojibwe), Harvest Moon (Dakota), and Ricing Moon (Anishinaabe) signify that this is the time to gather maturing crops.

Along the same vein, the Assiniboine people named this period Black Cherries Moon, referring to when chokecherries become ripe.

What Is a Sturgeon?

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

Females require around 20 years to start reproducing, and they can only reproduce every 4 years.

However, they can live up to 150 years!

Today, there are about 29 species worldwide, including the lake sturgeon found in the Great Lakes.

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.

Notice the pointed snout and whisker-like tactile organs near the mouth.
