Full Moon Names

Tonight is a Full Moon. It’s the 2nd full moon of August. And that means it’s a Blue Moon. At least, I think. I thought the 2nd Full Moon in a month meant it was a Blue Moon, but then Wikiepedia said something about a Blue Moon being the 3rd Full Moon in a season with 4 Full Moons. That seems a little complicated.

Back to the link. I was not aware that each month’s Full Moon has its own name. August is the Sturgeon Moon, but that already happened a few weeks ago. So look forward to the Full Harvest Moon on September 29th.

The next Blue Moon? July 2015. That is, if you are following the 2 in a month business. Sounds like next August has that other seasonal Blue Moon.
