The "Full Red Moon" beyond the Swing

Posted in

Several Native American tribes call the full moon of August the "Full Red Moon" because as it rises, it appears reddish through the haze - a haze similar to that of Tuesday evening. This moon is also know to many tribes as the "Full Sturgeon Moon" since sturgeon in major bodies of water are most readily caught this time of the year.
