Three points to summer’s triangle
Thursday’s full moon brightens the sky from dusk till dawn. American Indians called this the sturgeon moon, as it marks the time when these great fish once began their migration and were most easily caught. Sturgeon have been plying our waters for more than 150 million years, yet today most species are endangered.
More common names for August’s full are the grain moon, the lightning moon, the green corn moon and the red moon.
