"August's full moon is known as the Full Sturgeon Moon (among other lunar names like 'Full Green Corn Moon' and the 'Blueberry Moon') by some Native American tribes because it marks the time when its namesake fish can be most readily caught.
A so-called supermoon occurs when the full moon of a given month coincides with the moon's arrival at perigee, the point in its orbit when it is closest to Earth. During these times, the moon can appear up to 14 percent larger than it appears when it is at its farthest point from Earth. Supermoons, or perigee full moons, will occur on Oct. 16, Nov. 14 and Dec. 14.
During some full moons, the moon aligns directly behind the Earth with respect to the sun, creating a lunar eclipse as it passes through the Earth's shadow. Because the moon's orbit is tilted, this lunar alignment does not occur every month. The next such eclipse will be a minor penumbral lunar eclipse and will occur on Sept. 16."
