Full Sturgeon Moon - August

I don't think there are any sturgeon in the Waupoos neighbourhood to enjoy their namesake moon. But all the fish in the lake are probably drawn to the moonlight dazzle.

Rob and I were sitting on the back of Lyn's and Mike's boat looking at the sparks so bright, it looked like they were jumping to the moon.

The full moon August 10th promises to be the largest of the five super moons this year. Then the Perseid meteor showers peak between the 11th and 13th, but it will likely be difficult to see as many shooting stars with the moon so bright.   Gazing northeast toward Perseus and away from the moon should help.
