Since yesterday, the moon has managed to move the romantics and make them look forward to today’s full moon. As soon as she appeared, she compensated them with the above, as she stood impressive and brilliant in the sky.The eyes looked up and were dazzled by the beauty of the full moon. The photos capture a riveting moon, the most beautiful of the year.


The August full moon is known as the Sturgeon Moon. It has received this name from the Native Americans. To be precise, in ancient times peoples did not divide time into months, but on the basis of full moons. The moons were named according to the agricultural work or activities associated with that period.

The full moon of Augustus, therefore, was named the Sturgeon Moon because at that time the Native Americans were fishing for this particular fish, also known as Moruna.
