Full Red Moon_August 1

We awoke to a clear beautiful August 1 morning and a Full Moon over the valley.

 
 

She has been called the Green Corn Moon, Lightening Moon, Dog Moon and Grain Moon. Native American tribes who fished the Great Lakes and other large bodies of water are credited with naming it the Sturgeon Moon, while other tribes called it the Full Red Moon due to the intensity of color.
